Good morning, Claire here with some samples made by stamping on some acrylic blocks. Its always fun to find a new surface to stamp on and acrylic blocks are cheap and make lovely paper weights and home decor projects. There's a great range of sizes at Chocolate Baroque, you can find them here.
I had so much fun experimenting with different products and some worked better than others so I thought I'd share some of my projects which were made using the beautiful new stamps Poppy Edges
The first acrylic block was made using the lovely seed heads stamp. I gave my acrylic block a good dusting with an antistatic bag and stamped the image with gilding glue. I left the glue to set for a few minutes before applying the gilding flakes and then painted with Twinklin H20 paints mixed with a little gloss gel medium. The gel medium helps the water based paints adhere to the acrylic . Here's a pic of the painted image. I then tried using gilding wax around the edge of the block, I wasn't sure if this would work but after leaving it to dry for a few hours it polished off beautifully and gives the acrylic block a lovely edge.
This acrylic block wasn't so successful. I stamped the image with Black stazon and very carefully coloured with Graph'It markers. It looks quite pretty against the white card but I decided I wanted to make the image stand out a bit more so I painted the back with gesso and got in a dreaful mess lol. Lesson learned, next time i'll leave it much longer to dry
If you have a go at stamping on your acrylic blocks instead of with them, we'd love to see your projects. Thanks for visiting today
