It was a lot of fun, but fair warning: carefully remove embossing folder particularly if the embossed image has lots of detail as this one has:
Cool technique...gotta try that Did you have to use a lot of the pearl ex to tinit the gesso?

So cool. Did you make 3 different colors, then paint them on metal tape?
Thanks, AQ, for showing us a new technique using gesso.

It does take quite a bit of Pearl Ex to color the Gesso.

And yes, I made up three separate colors using a piece of wax lined butcher paper for my mixing palette. Next time I will try a foam egg carton as it does take some effort to mix the Pearl Ex into the Gesso.

I didn't have any paint brushes on hand, so I used the back of three different baby spoons to dole out the Pearl Ex and mix it into the Gesso and then used those same baby spoons to apply the mixture to the metal tape.

The applications went on rather thickly, but the embossing folder took care of that rather nicely.

Did you wait to emboss until the gesso was dry?

Yes. That is a must otherwise a HUMONGOUS mess will ensue. BTW, should some of the dried Gesso mix get caught in any part of the embossing folder, just give the embossing folder a good healthy THWACK on the smooth side and whatever is caught should just fall out. There may be some residual on the image side of the embossing folder, but this can just be wiped away very easily with a dry cloth.
