Steampunk Jigsaw Fridge Magnet by Mandy C



What I used:

Large jigsaw pieces (you could use these)
Creative Expressions Vintage Treasures for the steampunk word
Creative Expressions Vintage Illusion for the cogs
Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Misting inks
Gold Krylon Pen
Sheet of magnetic paper

What I did ~

      I sanded down the jigsaw piece so the gesso would sit on the piece. Paint with gesso .… it doesn’t take long to dry.

      Meanwhile, stamp Icarus onto a piece of tissue paper. Leave to dry.

      Once gesso is dry, use the Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Inks to add some colour. You can use a heat tool to speed up the drying time.

      Tear around the image on the tissue paper and adhere to the jigsaw piece with Matte Medium - it turns the tissue see-through and also seals it. It also makes the jigsaw piece appear aged.

      Stamp random cogs over the jigsaw piece as well as the word ‘steampunk’.

      Leave to completely dry before edging with the gold krylon pen.

      Cut a piece of magnet and attach to the back. J
