Molten Metals - A Tutorial

A little video to help make your backgrounds shiny and bright. Enjoy!

 Thanks, Kate!
Earlier this week I received this awesome award from my friend Kate at The Kathryn Wheel. Having accepted this fun award, it's now time to reveal three things about myself that make me 'different' from others. Hmmmm - I'd ask my family, but I'm sure they'd mention a lot more than three things.

1.  You can always find a vase filled with fresh flowers (sometimes just a few sprigs) on my kitchen table. When I'm on the phone, I usually find myself doodling them while I talk.

2.  I'm a hopeless romantic and adore any motion picture with Cary Grant, Gregory Peck and Clark Gable. **Sigh!** Just thinking about these guys gives me goosebumps!

3.   Speaking of movies, "Pretty Woman" is one of my faves, but I can watch "It's a Wonderful Life" over and over (ad nauseum) and cry at the end every single time!

Wishing you a weekend filled with fun!

Terri, your Molten Metals tut is fab! I love your technique and the papers you have made a wonderful! Looks like a lot of fun to me.

Sherry said...

Fabulous tutorial, I've never thought of using a pen in that way. Thanks for sharing a great technique.

ps, great camera work by the way, I could really see all the texture without any glare.

roc said...

pretty woman is my favorite movie, too!

Diane said...

Great technique!! I've done this before, but never thought of using a pen. And I agree--great camera work!

Janine said...

Dear Terri, thats another great tutorial.
My favourite is the one showing how to do the bleached background. That is such a clever idea, but I like them all.
Congrats to your award. Your Blog has surely an atitude.
I really had to smile, when I read the three things about you, cause I absolutely agree in every single point! He he
Have a great weekend

You've done it again girls. Love the video. I've splattered inks from those type of pens but never thought of using a heat gun to it. Love the way it explodes in tendrils and already have some ideas of how to use it in my work.

Thanks so much again Roc and Terri!

Kathy said...

Well, ain't you sumpin'!?! Love this tutorial. Never thought of using those pens that way. This was so fun, and thanks for sharing. You're always thinkin' aren't you?! I'm so glad that you are!! - Kathy

Hello from France! I've just been watching your latest video and I love the technique you demonstrate (thank you for sharing)but I have no idea what deli paper is.

Lynn said...

Great video tutorial girls, it's nice that you tried out a few different metalic pens and shared results with us. Love it!

Hi Terri - I'm miffed because I can't get my sound working on my computer - but I'll persist!
Now - on to your quirks...I am a chronic doodler - sometimes if I have to take down a number or info while I'm on the phone, by the time I've finished the phone conversation it's hard to find the info amongst all of the doodles! So I relate very well to this!!
I'll be back Mmmmwhahahaha!!

Martina said...

Terri, your videos and your studio are fantastic. You know, I have high regards for your artwork. But sometimes I don't have enough time to get around to everyone; but I always do enjoy your blog very much.
You are so inspiring!
Have a nice sunday, my friend.

When my Krylon Leafing Pens are at the end of their life, they shoot ink out right after you shake them. I've done this same thing using card stock and book pages, but like you, got the same oily residue on the back. The deli paper idea was well worth the price of admission (grin). Wonderful advice. Thanks to you and Rox for making this video

BTW, I went back and looked for the transfer tape tut, but couldn't find it on your blog. It looks interesting.

Theresa Plas said...

GREAT tutorial girls! The papers are gorgeous!

many thanks for sharing!!!
