Silky Glazed Tags

I am loving these new Luminarte Silks Glazing paints I just received from ArtistCellar!  They are so silky smooth, vibrant in color and create a semi-gloss glaze.  I decided to try them out on some tags and I’m really happy with the results.

I selected 3 of my favorite colors to start with (Teal Zircon, Fern and Coral Berry).  They have many more and I suspect I’ll end up with all of them soon.

The first tag I applies Teal Zircon with a palette knife and then spritzed it with water to give it a watercolor effect.  I did spread it with a brush to cover all of the tag.  Once I dried it with my heat gun the color is set and will not re-activate.  Which makes these great for layering colors.

Next I tried the Coral Berry and Fern with a sponge and stencils.  Very easy to apply and the colors stayed true.

I added some more background with a Hero Arts script stamp and Staz On midi pad.

I love the vibrancy of these glazes and you can control the intensity by adding some water or using more paint.

Here are a couple more I used with stamped backgrounds and stenciled (Balzer Designs Mixed Up Alphabet, and Dylusions Number Jumble) with the Silks Acrylic Glaze.

All of the tags have a wonderful shimmer to them when turned and it makes every one unique.  I’m so glad I gave these a try and I’ll definitely be adding more to my supplies.Thanks for visiting with me today friends!
Blessings,
