How To: Emboss with acrylic paint

Emboss with acrylic paint

This video discusses how to emboss using acrylic paints, like faux plastic.
What you need is cardstock paper, acrylic paints of at least two colors, an embossing folder, embossing ink, foam brushes, plastic, and clear embossing powder. Place your white cardstock on the plastic, and take your paint and add a few drops and spread the paint around with the foam brush and let it dry. Then take your embossing folder and brush paint on the front of the folder. Then place your card in the folder, paint side up, and clamp down to emboss. Then you can apply embossing ink and powder on top for accents. You can give a nice shabby chic to your card by dabbling with the ink. Then cover the entire thing with embossing powder and heat to activate.
