Acrylic or Acetate Swirl Technique Tutorial
This technique gets a "WOW" rating in my book. What do you think, do you agree?
The video below (if you are reading this via e-mail, you need to come to the blog to view the video) shows step by step directions of how to create this technique. It is easy BUT drying time takes 24 hours. This is not a card you would make at the last minute. You could tho create some acrylic/acetate pieces and have them set aside for a last minute card.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you use too dark of ink refills, your design will not show up. The colors should be light to medium or very tiny amount of dark ink. I used Concord Crush and it overpowered the image I had stamped.
