Tutorial – Cracked Glass Technique
Start with a stamped image. The pictured image is stamped on a piece of designer paper which gives it an extra-weathered look.
Cover the entire surface with Versamark direct to paper. Heat emboss the image with clear embossing powder (not pictured).
Let the embossed image cool/dry completely.
Repeat the embossing process (Versamark, clear powder, heat, let cool completely) about four times. with practice you’ll get a feel for how thick you want the embossing to get.
Note – if the embossing just bends and doesn’t crack, it is either not thick enough or it didn’t dry/cool long enough.
Tip – If you’re trying to get a crack in a specific place and bending isn’t working, try poking the back side of the paper with your fingertip.
Now it’s your turn. Give the cracked glass technique a try and post a link below.
