C067a Dry Reverse Technique

Select a stamp with bolder lines – a highly detailed stamp will not give you very good results. It is better to work with a smaller area as the paint dries rapidly. For this technique, you are picking up paint not putting it down as you usually do in stamping.

Cut a piece of white cardstock 3” square. Paint the square with Terra Cotta acrylic paint by Prism using a paintbrush. Set aside to dry.

Once it is completely dry, lightly paint over the terra cotta with black Glaze paint by Plaid. Immediately press the unlinked, dry pot 21.063.I page 86 into the wet paint and lift straight up – you have lifted the wet paint off with the stamp and the terra cotta is now showing through your image.

If you are stamping more than one image of the same stamp, you will need to clean and dry the stamp between each impression so that the stamp can continue to lift the wet paint off.

When the painted pot is completely dry, cut out the image with plain scissors.

I’ll finish the card in the next post.

This technique was taught to me via the internet by Amy Sample back in the early 2000’s.

First taught this class on March 12, 2003.
