Hi everyone, I'm so excited to share some hints and tips I’ve picked up along the way whilst doing crystal art. I find these so useful and I hope you do too! Leave me a comment if there's anything else you'd like a handy hack or tip for to help your crafty crystal creations!
♦ Crystal Art Sealer – I highly recommend using this product especially if you are hanging your canvas in the bathroom or kitchen where steam will reach it. I also use it on the motifs, crystal art stamps and cards if I know they will be handled a great deal. It stops the crystals from popping off accidentally and you don't lose the sparkle if used correctly (thin brush, small amount of sealer around the base of the crystal and wipe any excess off with a soft tissue).
♦ If you find that your crystals are stuck together, you can do a few things to separate them, rinse them in water and dry with a paper towel or use 2 green trays and place one on top of the other to press down on the crystals.
♦ Use a palette tray with several green trays in with different colours in each tray (make sure you mark up each section)
♦ I find using a larger orange tray helps with larger sections of block colour
I hope you have found these hints and tips helpful and if you have any of your own you would like to add, I would love to hear them!
Until next time……..
