Bonus June Project - Blistered Paint

Don't you just adore Jane France’s blistered paint technique (Blistering Barnacles) this issue? If you're not into grunge then you might think it's not for you - but think again! Here Jane shows you how to get a completely different style of card using the same technique.

Bursting with Love
Additional materials (from those listed in the magazine)…
Pink acrylic paint

Cut out a heart shape with heavy cardstock, add blush pink acrylic paint in blobs to give an uneven texture, blister the paint to the desired effect. Give the card base a rough paint with gesso and add some splats with white and red paint. Add the heart using foam tape. Finish the card with computer-generated text.

Get Well
Additional materials (from those listed in the magazine)…
Tim Holtz Layering Stencil: Splatters

Paint the card base roughly with gesso, add some splatters with white paint. Stencil the large splat with burnt umber acrylic paint, then add dimension by layering and blistering paint to the centre. Add the computer-generated sentiment to finish.

  1. Haha, love the "sick" card! Appeals to my warped sense of humour ;)

  2. Love the blistered paint, I'm off to give it a try!

  3. Thanks for such an inspirational magazine. I gave the blistered paint a try and it is so interesting to see what happens when you keep heating it. For details

  4. Natural bristle brushes were once considered the best paintbrushes to use, but the quality of synthetic brushes has improved dramatically in recent years and is now considered just as good as the natural ones. Paint Brush Manufacturer
