Thursday's Technique Tando

Today, we, Joanne and Carol, are using Viva Terra on our white board pieces.....

The best way to describe Viva's Terra is a coloured paste which is thick to apply, and when dry has a grit like feel to it - not to be confused with the Ferro paste which is grainy to apply - the texture is almost like fine pebble dash! Once again, the white board has stood up well - no warping or seperation and retained the colour of the paste.

Joanne has created this gorgeous jigsaw piece:-

the base of the jigsaw was coated with Terra and whilst still wet a crackle stamp was pushed into the paste, once dry black acryllic was painted over the top and then copper precious metal paint. The gorgeous butterfly is made from metal and painted with turquoise precious metal paint, a copper wire suspends it from the piece. Pop on over to Joanne's blog for more details.

Carol has used the shaped arch piece this time:-

the arch was painted with the terra and left to dry - distress stickles were rubbed into the corners and along the side to add sheen, a cogs stamp was then stamped onto the piece.

Pop back again on Tuesday for some more techniques using the white board.

These are great. I love working with Viva Decor Terra and Fero, they give great results and the Tando chippie really stands up to it.
