Hi everyone I decided Friday was a spare day on my blog so I am making it Friday Fun Day.
This is going to be the day I post my test pieces and for this week I have been playing with Mod Podge.
I noticed recently a video from debby epps where she was making something that she calls Acrylic Slick Skins, these reminded me of something that used to happen when I was still teaching.
The children were for ever leaving PVA in plastic tubs and it would set solid leaving the pattern of the tub in the PVA.
This got me thinking and I decided to give it a go.
I tried this first in the bottom of a plastic box (Fruit box).
It needs to be fairly thin just covering the bottom.
Let it dry completely and then you can pull it out by pealing it away from the plastic.
As you can see here it has turned clear but obviously this depends on what you use as lots of PVA stay white when set.
I love the bubbles which remained in the glue.
You can see that some of this is still white where it has not set completely. Just leave it for a little longer and:
Now it's completely clear.
Here you can see some of the glitter I added while the glue was still wet but you could add other things too.
And on these pieces you can clearly see the labels which were impressed in the plastic.
I think that this could be very interesting to develop further though as yet I am not sure what I will do with the pieces I've made but I am sure they will make interesting embellishments for Journals and canvas work.
Hope you found this interesting and I will be back next Friday with further samples.
Bye for now and happy crafting,
