A Faux Tintype Tutorial

At last, after numerous requests....
my faux tintype tutortial

Here is what you will need:
1. your images printed on cardstock
2. black cardstock
3. glue
4. Ranger's Glossy Accents
5. wax paper or freezer paper to work on
(trust me you will need it)

Keep your images together as large as possible.
It's easier to add the Glossy Accent to larger pieces.

Lay your freezer paper down (slick side up).
Slowly squeeze the Glossy Accents on your images
 and using your finger swipe the liquid downward.
Do Not Swirl. How you apply this - is how it dries.
Let dry for 1-3 hours.

Glue the dried images onto black cardstock.
Let this dry for 1 hour.

Carefully cut the images and you can allow the black cardstock to show on the edges.
Up to you.

Trim them as you like and you can make a charm
 by using a hole punch and a jumpring.

For your art, for adding to a wrapped many things you can do with these.
Take your time, do not rush.
Remember, mistakes are a part of the learning process.

I hope you enjoyed my first tutorial.
Happy creating everyone!

Let me know how they turn out!
