Hello all!!!! Today I have a media board to share with you all using the Ken Oliver Liquid Metals! You can totally do this on some cardstock and turn this into a card as well. I paired the Liquid Metals with this stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop and some Black Gesso! I have never used Black Gesso before and its awesome… It dries super fast and I love the solid, intense black sharp lines it leaves behind. I also have a video up showcasing this… You can watch the video right here on the blog or over on my youtube channel in HD!
I added a flower to her hair using a die from the Essentials by Ellen line from Ellen Hutson that I colored with the Fuschia Color Burst. Here is another close up of the media board. I wanted to capture the shine the Liquid Metals leave behind. It’s really incredible! Hard to capture on camera, but it’s there darn it! A tip when using the Liquid Metals Color Burst! Give the bottle a good shake as all the metal bits sit at the bottom of the bottle.
Coloring with these Liquid Metals is extremely easy and they blend so beautifully together. Just look at the rosey cheek and how easy it was to blend that out! I stamped the backside of the media board and will sign it “Mom” and I’ll give this to my daughter. Again, this something you can easily make as a card and mass produce! The stamp I used for the sentiment is from the Covered Bridges Stamp 1 stamp set.
So have you tried the new Liquid Metals? What do you think?
