Embossing Technique with Metal Dies

By Marina Ignatova 


“Hello, dear fans of G45!


How often do you use familiar things in a non-trivial way? Today I will show you how to use a cutting dies to make embossing.



To begin with, I cut down a few elements to create further volume.



I glued two parts together.


Next, I cover the details with soil. Separate base and cut parts.


We glue the bases and cut down parts.



Added textures using a paste with sand.


Using a brush, I tinted the surface with waxes of different colors.



And at the end, I run my finger over the surface of the metal wax in some places.



You get elements that can be perfectly used in layers of decor. So I got a fancy bright panel. Inspiration to you friends!” ~Marina
