Metal Look on Acrylics

After sharing some ATCs in the last two days, I think I'll take a break and share this technique with you all.

This is a technique that I've used in one of my recent project for CHA. It really easy to create your one of a kind metal look piece from acrylic. Simply follow the steps below.

1) Run a piece of Clear Scraps acrylic through an embossing machine. (I've used a Clear Scraps acrylic decorative frame and run it through a Cuttlebug)

2) Use an alcohol ink applicator and some silver alcohol ink to ink the acrylic piece. (You could use any metallic alcohol ink for this step)

Isn't this simple? You can do this in seconds. It will be such an elegant embellishment to any project. Try it!
