I added a new TT over on OWSE:

Look over on OWSE for more details.
portion of example

“Embossed Tiles”


  1. Apply light modeling paste to a piece of canvas.
  2. Apply a stamp into the paste while still wet, lift off and then clean stamp with an old toothbrush.

Note: adding the right pressure to the stamp takes practice.

  1. Allow this to dry.
  2. Wet the surface of the Light Modeling Paste piece with a paint brush.
  3. Start dropping transparent colors of paint onto the piece.  Bright color family works best for this technique. If you have enough water on the piece the colors will spread like magic to look like embossed tiles.  You will leave some areas light in color.
  4. Let this dry.
  5. Rewet the surface and then add gold iridescent paint to the white areas.
  6. Allow this to dry.
  7. Coat the surface with Clear Tar Gel using a palette knife and allow this to dry thoroughly.

I would love to hear your comments about this technique!
