Instructions

Hello there, crafty friends! It’s Cheiron Brandon back with another post using Tim Holtz products. This month, I am sharing some ideas for using Distress Foundry Wax on cards.  

For today’s card, I wanted to show you some of the ways I like to use Foundry Wax, to highlight textures of paper and metal elements on my cards. A few tips when using this wax, always remember to shake it well to mix it, and keep it away from your embossing tool.  


 
Distress Foundry Wax Full of Wonder Card Step 1

Step 1: To begin, let’s gather our supplies: Foundry Wax (in all the colors, of course), Black Alcohol Ink Cardstock, a Sizzix 3D Texture Fades (I used the new Numbered), and a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Word Plaque.

Step 2: Emboss your Black Alcohol Ink Cardstock using the texture fade. I misted my paper with water a few times before I put it in the folder to make it more pliable.

Step 3: Now it’s time to add the Foundry Wax to the panel. Be sure to shake your Foundry Wax well until you hear the mixing ball. Put one color at a time onto your glass mat. I put a little dot and added the wax to the panel with my finger (you can wear gloves or use a brush if you wish).

Step 4: Continue adding the wax to all the numbers on the panel using all four colors of wax. Once you are finished, heat the wax with your embossing gun.

Step 6: Choose some Ephemera to use on your card. I used a Paper Doll Portrait as the focal point.

Step 8: Add Foundry Wax splatter by mixing a bit of the Foundry Wax with a few drops of isopropyl alcohol. Mix it together, splatter on your project, and then heat set. I also put a piece of scrap paper over most of the Portrait Paper Doll while I did this.
