Hi everyone. It's my turn over at The House That Stamps Built to host the project of the week. I have chosen to do Faux Cloisonne.
Cloisonne (pronounced cloy-zon-ay, French for ”partition”) is an ancient
metalwork technique that makes use of small, precious metal filaments
and colorful glass enamels to create brilliant artwork.
Here is what you need for this technique.
Gold or metallic embossing powder
I chose one of the most recent Coldwater Creek magazines I get due to the rich autumn colors in it.
I stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed using gold embossing powder. See example picture below.
During this time of year, the clothing magazines are so full of beautiful colors and textures and this technique makes it fun to create some wonderful works of art. Hope you find the time to experiment and if you do, please share you work with us!
Thanks for stopping by!
