Hello everyone, I'm so happy you are here, as I have an acrylic tag to share. I loved working on the acrylic as it is so versatile. I have lots of ideas but they are for another day, however today I'm sharing quite a simple creation.
I don't have any process shots, as to be honest I got so into the tag I forgot. I have some shots of another acrylic tag in process so I will show them so you get the idea.
I liked to work back to front on acrylic, as it looks like something under glass when viewed from the other side. However for this tag I chose a stamp with script which has to stamped on the right side otherwise it cannot be read. It's like looking at script in a mirror.
So I decided to work on both sides. First I chose to do the background. I used pigment powders activated spray paint on one side. Because the acrylic isn't porous all the colours pool on top. I dried it with a heat gun. It looked similar to this but I had used different colours.
This isn't quite dry but you can see the effect it has. Once my tag was dry I allowed it to cool.
I then stamped my feature. Again this is similar.
I dried the ink with a heat tool and then painted the areas of the stamp I wanted to have colour.
Here are some close ups.
Because the background colour isn't solid any colours you place behind it give the tag a new look.
A few more.
What I used
Brusho's in Grey, Olive Green, Brown
I love how the different colours underneath the tag change the colours on the tag. Isn't colour just wonderful!
Take care from me.
