Creating Texture with Resin Sheets by Guest Artist Cat Kerr

Guest Artist Cat Kerr



Today’s post is by Guest Artist Cat Kerr. She shares her technique for using embossing folders to create textured resin sheets for her artwork. Somerest Place would like to thank her for her amazing artwork and video.

I’m addicted to incorporating texture into my work and so when I first tried this technique and it didn’t ruin my embossing folder, well, I just about fell off my chair! This is a fun and easy way to add texture to your art and the absolute best thing about this technique is the endless amount of embossing folder designs out in the market.

    Not sure from your video whether you used the Clear or White version of the Amazing Casting Resin. As it went white that may be the answer, although I didn’t see the resin before you painted it so it COULD have gone clear when completely dry.
    This is a wonderful idea, and I want to try it as soon as I can get to a store and get some of the Resin.

  12. An incredible tutorial from the amazingly inspirational Cat Kerr.
    I so wish I had embossing folders but as I don’t own a die cutting machine I haven’t purchased folders. Maybe it’s time for a re-think on the embossing folders!
    Thank you for sharing.
