Having watched Sheena Douglas demonstrating the other day, I thought I would play with my Mixtion relief.. I didn't want to use anything precious for my "tester" pieces, so I chose a coffee jar for my first piece. I rubbed the Mixtion on with my finger and then using Leonie Pujo'ls stamps I stamped into it to remove some of the paste. When dry I applied Pebeo mirror leaves, which actually give a silver finish, albeit the design looks black in the photo, but it was very difficult to catch the effect. I also smeared the relief over the screw top.

I then decided to use one of my little candle glasses for the second experiment. Although I started off exactly the same as the coffee jar, when tacking I applied Pebeo silver leaf to it. As you will see the paste "grabbed" more of the leaves. I also think I didn't removed quite as much of the paste as I could have, so ended up with a completely different effect.

My next experiment when the product arrives will be to use the Mixtion liquid, and actually stamp with it to see what result I get then.
