Aged And Distressed

Amongst May’s DT Product Package from The Altered Element , I received some Crafty Notions Rusting Powder.  This powder can be used on textiles, papers  and other surfaces. I  suggest you experiment and see what surface works best for you. There are only a few steps required when using this powder:-

1. Apply Gel Medium or craft adhesive to the surface. 2. Tap off any excess. 3. Spray water or white vinegar onto the surface. 4. Leave for approx 10-15 mins. 5. More water or vinegar can be sprayed to intensive the result.

    Wow! That’s impressive stuff – I love how that corrugated cardboard looks (that’s what it is, right?) and even zoomed in on the picture to see more of it. Great for a vintage look!!

    Oh!! Love this!! I need more instruction, though. I have questions on the order of the technique. Is there a site to visit? Appreciate your reply.
