HOW TO USE PIGMENT POWDERS- STAGE 2

This technque is using your pigment powders and a versamark (watermark) ink pad.
There is enough materials in your kit, for you to be able to do this technique.


Step 1

· Find a medium texture stamp

· Place the stamp on its back

· Using the watermark Versamark pad

Dab the pad on top of the stamp

Step 2


Turn your stamp over
Stamp onto some white cardstock
Press your stamp firmly
Step 3
  • Get a dab of pigment powder using your finger
Place the pigment powder over the top of the watermarked image

Step 4
  • With pigment powder on your finger
  • Rub your finger over the top of the watermarked image
Cover the entire image

Step 5



  • If you use too much pigment powder you won’t see an image
  • So evenly place the powder over the top
  • If you have used too much rub a bit off with your fingers
  • Your fingers may need a cloth to wipe them with, for they will get a bit messy
Step 6
  • Place your letter template over the top of your coloured watermarked image.Trace around the edges

Step 7

  • Take off your template
  • Cut around the edges

NOTE: WHEN CUTTING CUT ON THE


INSIDE OF THE LINE SO YOU WON’T SEE ANY OUTLINE

Step 8

  • You may want to ink around the edges with a dark ink pad

Or another option

  • Place double sided tape on the back of the letter
  • Take off the backing
  • Adhere onto some contrasting coloured cardstock as a background
Then cut out, leaving 3mm edge all the way around


SOMETHING EXTRA

  • IF YOU HAVE ANY PIGMENT POWDER LEFT ON YOUR BRUSH
  • USE IT ON A SPARE CHIPBOARD LETTER OR SHAPE.
  • YOU MAY WANT TO ADD SOME GLITTER TO IT TO ADD SOME MORE SHINE.

This is a really fun yet easy to do!

Please let me know if you have any question xx
