Gel medium makes an amazing glue for collage projects, this is from the Golden paints website:
Quote:
Gel Mediums offer artists many ways to build texture. They range in consistency from pourable to moldable with varying degrees of sheen and transparency. They can be used to create glazes, extend paints and change finishes. Some gels incorporate pumice, glass or acrylic granules that impart unique reflective, rough or absorbent surface qualities.
Gels can be thought of as colorless paint, as they are composed of 100% acrylic polymers similar to acrylic paint. They can also act as adhesives in collage and mixed media that dry to form continuous films with excellent flexibility with chemical, water and UV resistance
The water and white caps on this atc were done with gel medium and inks: http://www.rubberstampchat.net/galle...7371&ppuser=90

using glyceryn with it before. Where do you buy it?
You can find it at most pharmacies and grocery stores. You also buy 70% alcohol that has glyceryn already in it at the grocery store, then for a single purchase you have multiple uses.

Stacy, the water on that ATC came out great! I have used the medium with the pumice in it on a large desert painting. Also used cheesecloth soaked in acrylic paint to form the mountains.

I'd love to hear what your favorite tip/technique is!
Backgrounds are so much fun and each one can show your creativity and no two cards will ever look the same. Shaving cream/marble is great for a rainy day. Porous sponges are wonderful to dab(especially on glossy card) when you just put a drop of several colors on your craft sheet. Stamps that have bold lines,embossed, make great work surfaces with diluted or full strength inks.
The inks are important as to kinds. Water based seem to work better when working with the marble background(several drops in a box,roll around the marbles.In lid afix card stock with just a bit of adhesive, flip box over and roll and shake from side to side. I have tried chalk reinkers and while they work it is not as nice as plain water based.
You will never run out of ideas(or coloring supplies) as long as you have reinkers on hand!

Seeing as I don't have any marbles rolling around (ha ha ha), I'll have to come up with something else.

What does alcohol ink do that regular reinkers don't do?

Has anyone tried reinkers with Pearl Ex?

You are such a great video hunter. I never would have thought of ussing gesso. My first thought might have been to go for white acrylic paint in a good brand so it is a little thicker and then use the reinkers to custom dye my shades.

Thank you Fab. There are times when I'm hunting for something particular and then there are other times when I happen upon something quite by accident.
