After creating my version of Tim’s 12 Tags of 2015, I thought the technique would look great on some paper mache eggs. The paper mache eggs were too dark to use the Distress Markers on. Then I remembered that Wendi Vecchi used newsprint and Ranger’s Glue n’ seal on surfaces so that she could stamp on them. I thought may be this would work for me. So I have combined techniques from Tim and Wendi to create my eggs.
Step 1: Tear up the newsprint into small pieces. This makes it easier to work on the curved surface of the egg. Step 2: Spread Glue n’ seal with a brush to a small area. Attach a piece of newsprint. Smooth around the egg with the brush or your finger. Repeat until the egg is covered. Repeat for all eggs. Step 3: Allow eggs to dry.
Step 4: Using Archival Ink stamp images on eggs. I used the stamps without an acrylic block.Step 5: Color the stamped images with a variety of Distress Markers. Use the water brush to blend the colors. Step 6: Place in basket and enjoy.
