Hi everyone, back again! This week I have been playing with the new Lustre Luxe paints. They are absolutely fabulous and so different from other products I have used. They are metallic and really opaque and so their coverage and finish is fantastic.
I have been using them to make samples for the upcoming Hochanda show on Monday 5th and I wanted to share one of them which I was really happy with.
Here is my project...
I used a large MDF tag and applied the lustre luxe straight onto it using a foam ink applicator. I used the purple pearl and ocean blue, and used a wet baby wipe where the colours met to blend the colour. Once it was dry (which is no time at all) I stamped some of the butterflies from the new Birds & Butterflies set in silver.
I also stamped and heat embossed some of the butterflies in silver onto white card. I then used some watered down lustre luxe to colour them in using a paintbrush. When they were dry I cut them out and glued them on. I only glued the middle and lifted the wings to create some dimension.
I stamped a sentiment onto white card and added it at the bottom on foam pads.
The lustre luxe has such a beautiful metallic finish and covers and blends wonderfully well. It really is a fabulous product and I shall definitely be treating myself to some more colours.
I hope you have liked the project I have created this week, and you shall see it and lots more samples on Hochanda next week.
