This video contains a step-by-step, mixed-media tag tutorial using Prima Marketing's Relics and Artifacts by Sandra Evertson and additional mixed-media products from Finnabair.
Techniques Featured in this Video:
First, cover the entire surface of a Relics and Artifacts piece with black gesso. Use a heat gun to speed up the drying time.
Next, cover it with graphite texture paste. While the texture paste is still wet, sprinkle it with glass beads and micro-beads.
Cover the other Relic and Artifact piece with silver alcohol ink.
Once dry, spray with gray and teal ink spray.
Mask a tag with a stencil and graphite texture paste. Then spray with gray and teal spray ink.
Mask wing stencil with graphite texture paste onto watercolor paper.
Clean the stencil, and turn it to the other to create the opposite wing. Let the wings dry, and then cut them out.
Embellish the tag with the Relics and Artifacts pieces, metal embellishments, and flowers.
Spray the metal flowers and leaves with spray inks.
Spray the small area of a sheet of watercolor paper with spray ink, dry with a heat gun, and then glue a black metal frame over it.
Randomly add 3-D Matte Gel on the metal flowers. Add more glass beads to the gelled areas.
Glue a word inside of the frame, and glue it to the tag.
