Default Glue Techniques

There are quite a few different techniques we can make with white glue. Let's use this thread to post our favorite Glue Techniques. Please feel free to add your ideas and/or art.

Faux Peeled Paint Technique

You will need white glue (I used Elmers School Glue)
Acrylic Paint (I used Folk Art, ButterPecan)
Cardstock (I used teal)

-Spread white glue on cardstock (use enough glue so it will stay wet during the next step).
-While the glue is still wet, spread acrylic paint over the gluey-cardstock. Varying the amount of paint adds interest.
-Let your background dry naturally, or if desired, use a heat tool. If using the heat tool, keep the heat about 12" above the surface, so you don't heat and bubble the glue under the paint. (BTW, that is a different technique.)
The acrylic paint dries faster then the glue, and that is what causes this great effect.

This card was featured in July 2010 Vamp Stamp News, p. 1.

Glue & Reinker Technique

I originally posted this technique under the Plastic Wrap Technique, but it seems logical to cross-reference it here with the Glue Techniques!

All you need is white glue (Elmers is fine), reinkers, cardstock and a piece of Plastic Wrap.

Pour some glue on a saucer (I like to use a 6" square ceramic tile from Menards).
Add a few drops of reinker and roughly blend into the glue.
Use a wadded up piece of Plastic Wrap (or sandwich baggie) to dab the colored glue on the cardstock.
Leave some white space especially if you are going to add a coordinating color of glue/reinker.
Wash your saucer with soapy water.
Let the background dry and use as a background. (The paper curls, but you can work out the curl with your hands, or put it under a weight -- like a book).

Glue and Pearl Ex

Mix a little bit of Pearl Ex into your glue to make a paint. Let dry naturally.

Kissing Pearls

Squirt glue on black cardstock. Smooth around with finger. Sprinkle a couple different colors of Pearl Ex on glue and smooth again with finger. Use an uninked stamp and stamp on the wet Pearly-Glue cardstock. Clean off stamp and repeat stamping/removing Pearly-glue. Cut and use as desired.

I used a dragonfly here. Be careful, it is slippery and you get a little suction when you remove the stamp. Of course, clean your stamp thoroughly when finished.

Have fun.

Show us some of your samples, OK?

Glue & Reinker Background Variation #2

Stamp your image using StazOn on a piece of acetate. Let dry thoroughly. Turn over and squirt some glue on the back of the acetate. Drip reinker on the glue and smear around with your finger. Let dry naturally.

(A variation if you are using acetate that can take the heat: heat the Glue & Reinker Background with a heat tool to get a bubbly background.)

Bubbly Glue and Pearl Ex Technique

I have alluded to the fun Technique created when you add heat to your glue.

Here I stamped the flowers, then painted the center flower with some Pearl Ex mixed into the glue, then heated it with the heat tool to cause the bubbling.

What if?..... Experimentation...

I had this UGLY background (Distress Inks smeared on cardstock, then bleach dripped on it), so there was nothing to loose.

What if ... Wood Glue? So I smeared wood glue on it, heated it to bubbling with the heat tool. Still YUCK.
What if ... more DIstress Ink? So I smeared Vintage Paper Distress Ink on it, reheated. Repeated (smearing and heating) with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.

Tip: you must reheat the glue to bubbling at this point or the ink rubs off. The bubbling action seems to "capture" the ink.

Left: UGLY background
Right: Finished background
I added the finished card (which I submitted for the OnyxXpressions June Sketch Challenge).
