This is SO easy and the finished look is awesome.
- Dilute the glue so that it is the consistency of milk.
- Tear the tissue paper into manageable strips. (You will notice that the tissue will tear straighter in one direction that the other.)
- Work outside or cover your inside work surface.
- Working in small sections, paint the glue on the surface you want to cover.
- Add a piece of tissue paper and paint over it with more glue.
- Make sure to push out any air bubbles with the paint brushor, depending on how sloppy you are, hands.
- Add another piece of tissue paper overlapping the first one.
- Repeat a gazillion times… or several, depending on your project.
- Allow to dry.
That’s it… almost too simple, huh? I have used this treatment so many times and in different ways. You can use it on a book cover like I did for our son’s sketchbook for Christmas last year.
For Jamie’s I covered a Phoenix that I took off of a cheapie dollar store shield and it made a great gift. LooHoo’s was a piece of leftover faux tin from our backsplash.
You will find all sorts of other crafts that I have used it on here on my website. Give it a try, it’s inexpensive, easy and somehow, therapeutic.
