Faux Wood Grain

Faux Wood Grain

I’m always on the look-out for vintage rubber stamps or painting tools because you never know when you’ll find a gem just waiting to be used again. You can’t imagine how excited I was when I found a whole set of vintage faux wood graining tools! I knew right away that I had to have them. As luck “wood” have it, they are perfect to use with Creative Medium! You don’t have to go in search of vintage wood grain tools as there are many types available at home improvement stores in the paint or faux finish section.

Shiny Embellishments with Creative Medium

Shiny Embellishments with Creative Medium

Have you ever found a new technique accidentally? Typically this occurs along side a failure! We found out how to create these cute shiny, and we really mean glassy shine, when trying to adhere a patterned paper to the back of a piece of acrylic. It was all going swimmingly until a couple of days later we tested it’s hold, and it peeled right off! Our disappointment was short lived as we looked at the piece of paper and saw the glassy iridescent shine left behind. The hardest part of this technique is the waiting. The Creative Medium needs to be very dry before peeling it off. Trust us- we have a lot of torn paper from lack of patience! As difficult as it is to photograph, we hope this video does the look of these embellishments justice. But there’s no way for us to show you the tactile part. They feel like little pieces of smooth rubber or something—try it!
