Die-Namite Dies Used:
- Die cut my embellishment, using heavy card stock (80 lb or more) or mixed media paper. (you are going to load your die cut with a lot of pigment so be sure to use heavier card stock as thinner card stock may warp.
- Combine pigment and water. You only need just a little water to create a brilliant, dazzling paint. I like to use my water brush to control the amount of water added to the pigment.
- And paint! Load your die with the pearlized pigment paint. There's no method for painting the pigment on. This is super easy, folks! I love easy :)
- Allow your altered die cut time to dry. I left mine to dry overnight. You can also use an embossing heat tool to speed up the process!
- Ta da! your radiant die cut is ready to take center stage!
Do you recognize this beautiful die? I used it in my first blog post! I love the versatility of Die-Namites dies when used with different color mediums and design approaches (e.g. clean and simple, mixed media, shabby chic and everything in-between)! Each die cut takes on an entirely different look!
Using pearlescent/glimmer paint is a nice touch for special occasion and holiday cards. I hope you enjoyed my easy take on adding a little glam to your die cuts. Thanks so much for stopping by! Tyra
