I finally found my way to some green pepper press stamps , purchased months ago. This was such a fun project. The cover and back were coated with textured paste, then stamped with some patterned foam stamps. It was then painted over with verdigris and rust paint, and then an activator which caused the rust reaction.
The insides of the booklet was painted with white and some teal coloured paints, even stamped with those metal alphabet punches. Burnt umber paint was painted over the punched words until it got into the cracks, then wiped out using some scrap paper. The edges were painted with more rust paint and activator.
The back however is my absolute favourite. It is very textural. I am thinking of getting some square canvases and having this effect all over them! maybe i'll get to that next weekend. This weekend is almost over... i'm off work tomorrow though. I have jury duty YAYYY!!! lol
