This project was so much fun to create. One of my members of my Artist Trading Cards Club provided the inspiration after I gave a technique demonstration on how to stamp into the paperclay. I love the results and plan on creating more for my living space as home decor.
Once I adhered the stamped images to the outlet and light switch covers. I put Gesso on both items. At first, I was going to use white Gesso on the cover with the girl stamped on it but I changed my mind and used black.
After I let the pieces dry, I painted the cover with the girl with Inka Gold then I applied with a paint brush. For the stamp with the little boy blowing bubbles, I used Americana Multi-Surface Satin Paint, Distress Paint (Black Soot) and finished both items by rubbing more of Inka Gold that I applied with my finger. It was SO much fun and I cannot wait until do my next project!!!
Tip: Use a brayer, rolling pin or PVC pipe to flatten the CP but make sure to let it be thick enough to support the impression of the stamp. You may have to try a couple of times, but it is worth it. I also let both items dry overnight.
