Diamond Glaze

Scrap That!'s January "Don't Stop the Carnival" Kit includes Judikins Diamond Glaze. Our designer Janis (who totally rocked this kit) shares some tips/tutorials on how she used it on her kit projects.

1) Diamond Glaze on Stamped Image
Diamond Glaze can instantly give additional texture on your paper and embellishments. What I always love to do is to apply it on a stamped image to give it that epoxy sticker-look (looked up the official decription, it is clear glass-like finish!!!!). On my layout "Treasure these Moments" that you can see HERE, I stamped my ticket image on the cardstock included in the kit, cut it out and topped it off with the Diamond Glaze. Since the kit also includes Ranger Stickles in Xmas Red, I used the Stickles to outline my ticket for additional texture.

2) Diamond Glaze + Glitter Powder

Diamond Glaze can also act as an adhesive. I created handmade blooms in the same layout but wanted additional texture so I thought of sprinkling my flowers with glitter powder.

I applied Diamond Glaze on the edges of my petals and then sprinkled, errrr topped (as I think I have dropped too much glitter powder!!! LOL!!!) my flowers with glitter powder.

Just shake off the excess glitter powder and you'll have a handmade bloom with really beautiful grainy and glittery texture!!!!

 3) Diamond Glaze + Pearl Powder + Watermark Stamp Pad on Chipboard

The kit includes a cute mannequin chipboard from Maya Road and I wanted to use it on my layout (you can see my layout "Charming Adorable" HERE). I thought if I can use Diamond Glaze on paper/cardstock, I sure can use it too on chipboard!

Since the mannequin chipboard was raw, I wanted a bit of color on it. Since I'm big on symmetry, I wanted another purple shade to match my flower on my layout. I inked the chipboard with my watermark stamp, dusted pearls over it, and then topped it with Diamond Glaze.

The Diamond Glaze makes my chipboard look more polished!!!

4) Diamond Glaze + Alcohol Ink

Want to have a tinted finish on your embellies? Try mixing alcohol ink with your Diamond Glaze! In a small container, I put a little amount of Diamond Glaze and a drop of Ranger Alcohol Ink (Eggplant shade). Since the Diamond Glaze is water-based, the ink dissolved fast. I topped my flower on my layout "Europe or Bust" which you can see HERE to make the purple shade more prominent.

Hope you like these little tutorial/tips that I shared with you. Have fun playing with Diamond Glaze!!!
