I hope you are all well.
Today’s little project is a faux encaustic tile Christmas decoration.
I like the green and greys tones and colours from winter landscapes and natural elements that are around this year.
Using a palette knife I coated a small wooden coaster with gesso and then with two shades of green paint.
I stamped my tree image using Grey Staz-On.
I then covered the whole surface with Versamark and embossed the surface using ultra thick clear embossing powder.
The embossing gives it a waxy chunky finish although the photo doesn’t really show it.
I cut a small piece of fabric to size and dabbed onto it some white gesso and attached it with some gel medium (glue would work equally as well). I broke a wooden lollipop stick in half and rubbed a small amount of gesso on it, stamped the sentiment and embossed (just the stamped area) with clear embossing powder.
I then attached the lollipop stick piece to the fabric with gel medium (again, strong glue would work).
I stapled a piece of thin garden string to the back of the coaster for hanging purposes.
