Emboss Painting is certainly the most charming and creative of all paintings.. it has a different feel to it .. a sense of creation .. n a pride of seeing things your way :)
Emboss painting can be done on Silver Foil ( hard ) , here we will learn to do it on Cloth.
Embossing actually implied to embellish or engrave thru colors.
You need to produce a deep impression of your art , this is done thru Emboss powder which engraves
in reverse on ironing.
1. Emboss powder required ( Will post the mixture proportion soon )
2. Velvet Cloth
3. Oil Paint / Fabric Colors with shimmer
4. Plastic Brush ( Normal brush will not be used here )
1.Take the velvet Cloth and make sure there are no dust particles on it.
2.Mix the emboss powder in white paint and carve ur design on it.
3.Leave to dry.
4.After it has dried , its time for the effect.
5.Take a moiost piece of cloth ( good quantity of water should be present in the cloth. )
6.Keep it on the back side of the velvet cloth and iron it.
7.The design should rise from the front.
8. Make sure you iron all the parts of the design .
9. You may now paint it with oil paint or shimmery fabric paint.
For kids you dont want to do the emboss powder procedure they can try readymade kits available in the market
All you need it to iron and paint ( Step 5 onwards )
The mixture preparation is the most important step, not getting that right shall mess up the entire painting
and it will not rise , hence all the aura of the painting shall die :)
