Hello friends! Welcome to the Creative Scrapbooker blog. It’s Karan Gerber here today to share a rusty tag project with you featuring Prima Marketing Rust Paste. I hope you like what I have designed for you today.
I have been feeling somewhat rusty lately, LOL and by saying that I mean, I have been using the Rust Paste from Prima Marketing on a lot of my projects lately. This little jar of goodness is really easy to use, you just need to apply it in a dabbing motion, and heat set or let dry and this is what the end result looks like. It’s super easy to use and the effect is pretty incredible. Here is a sneak peek. The base of this tag is a Tim Holtz Etc tag measuring 4.5 x 8. I then covered it with gel medium and placed Rice Paper from Ciao Bella ( Oxido CBRP073) on top, applying a coat of gel medium on top and heat setting to dry. Just be careful with the rice paper, it can tear very easy when it gets wet. I wanted to tone down some of the red in this rice paper so I did a whitewash with Finnabair Art Basics Heavy White Gesso by Prima Marketing. To do this, dab your brush into some gesso and dab most of it off, leaving only a small amount of paint on the brush, hence a whitewash. You will need to heat set this to dry. If you dabbed too much paint on. It’s really easy to take off with a baby wipe. Once that step was dry, I grabbed a stencil and added some texture paste, I kept the texture paste only to the outside edges of the tag as I wanted the center to be free of texture as I had a plan for this area. Here is the result of the texture paste step, you will need to heat this to dry at this stage. Here comes the Prima Marketing rust paste: I dabbed the edges of the tag using a sponge brush, and once again, heat set to dry, I did not put a really thick coat on, I just wanted the edges to look like rust. Next, I wanted to use Tim Holtz Faceted Heart Die; I die cut it out on kraft cardstock, assembled it and it looks like this. I then added a coat of Prima Marketing Rust Paste adding in some brown, orange and green rust paste especially in the areas where I wanted to add shadows. I then die cut out a Graphic 45 gear tag on black cardstock. I cut the edges off and kept the center piece intact, dabbed on a coat of Orange Prima Marketing rust paste, a bit of green and heat set. I added rust paste to some wooden gars I had leftover from a previous project, I grabbed these from our local dollar store. I added a key, a chain, and some small hinges just because. And the title is also from Tim Holtz, it’s one of his chipboard sayings, I dabbed some rust paste on the edges. The final step was to dab some Vintage Gold Wax on random areas to highlight the rust. And here is my Tag; I hope I have inspired you to try Rice Paper and check out those Prima Marketing Rust Pastes, they are super fun to play with.
