Glazing Technique Tutorial

This is a fairly simple technique that really adds depth and pop to your stamped outline images. I'm using the new December Stamp of the Month, S1512 Candlelight Garden.

Here is a full supply list:
*Water in a spray bottle
*Any stamp pad or re-inker
*Water brush
*Glazing medium
*Stamped outline images
*Acrylic Block
*Baby Wipe

Step 1: dab a bit of your ink pad or re-inker ink onto the acrylic block and pour a small dab of glazing medium on top of it. Using your waterbrush mix the two. If it dries while your using it spitz with a bit of the water from the spray bottle.

 Step 2: "Color" in your stamped images. You can use darker inked areas to show highlights adding depth and dimension to your images. Clean up is a breeze...just wipe off your waterbrush onto a baby wipe until it shows clean.
