Laura Liddell: How to Stamp on Lumpy Bumpy Surfaces

In this tutorial I will show you how to add stamping to your textured surfaces.

It could be any textured surface but I will be concentrating on a textured frame.
First cover the frame with Viva Terra paste.

Once dry cover with acrylic paint of your choice.

Then choose the stamps you want to use, some tissue paper and a waterproof ink.
Stamp the images onto the tissue paper.

It is a good idea to heat set the stamped images with a heat gun.

I like to tear the edges rather than having scissor sharp edges. They tend to blend into the texture better.

Apply the images with a paintbrush and some watered down PVA. About single cream consistency.

Place the images around the frame.
Apply a coat of PVA onto the frame where the image will be put. Place the image down then coat with another layer of PVA.

Keep going until you are happy with the frame.

Then you can use it in your creations.

Hope you find this useful and enjoy using the technique. Laura Liddell
