PAPER CASTING

with Crafter's Pick "Fabric Stiffener"

by .Delores F. Ruzicka, SCD

Materials Needed:

  • Crafter's Pick Fabric Stiffner

  • Toilet paper or paper towel ( the cheaper the better; no quilting, no extra loft, no flowers)

  • Chunky foam stamp

  • Choice of acrylic paints, colored pencils, water colors or chalks

  • Vegetable spray such as PAM

  • Brushes (1" foam or regular brush)

General Instructions:

1. Spray an even coat of vegetable spray onto the stamp, this is a very important step so that the stamp is not ruined.

2. Make a "stack" of 4 squares of 2 ply toilet paper or 10 squares of single ply toilet paper. Place the stack on the foam stamp(Make sure the entire stamp is covered)

3. Use the 1" brush to saturate the toilet paper stack with Fabric Stiffner. As the toilet paper begins to absorb the fabric stiffner, it will fall around the detail of the stamp. A fine application spray of water may be applied after the Fabric Stiffner has been put on. This will make the toilet paper conform to the stamp design.'

4. Let dry thoroughly; overnight preferred.

5. Paper casting will easily pop off the stamp (the stamp may be washed with warm water and dish detergent to remove any remaining vegetable spray.

6. Paper casting can be trimmed close to the design using scissors or apply water close to the design (this will soften the casting). You may then tear the casting to create a deckle edge around the design.

7. Apply color (using acrylics, water colors, chalks or colored pencils of your choice)

8. Paper casting may now be adhered to cards, journals or they may be framed.

General Glue Instructions:

• Always test first for best appearance and results

• Work with materials and glue above 60°F.

• Apply glue and allow to dry 24 hours in warm room. For interior use.

Clean up: Use warm water and detergent.
