PRIMA presents Relics and Artifacts

Hi, it's Jean I am so enjoying our PRIMA month.  It has truly made my creativity spark to life.  

Flowers, papers and YES ~ Sandra Evertson's Relics and Artifacts are among my playthings this month.  

I started with a white relic and started adding stain and color with my Splash Inks.  The composition of the relics allows the inks to slightly absorb, allowing time to rub and move the ink around.

The reverse side before I started adding layers to the front.   Each color added another dimension, I rubbed magenta and then Azure and even mixed some together and rubbed them on.  Then I used the Liquid Delicata for an extra royal touch.

I also adore the Delicata gold ink you have seen me use before, it is from Imagine Crafts.  

The richness of color is astounding as you layer the inks.  With Splash Inks, you make any color you want.   You can add it to a water brush or place it in a spray bottle or simply a bottle or jar to be able to reuse that color again.  With each package, you receive a color chart for custom mixing OR make you own as you go. 


These pieces can be for Jewelry, mixed media, collages, adornments, even for holiday or special occasion ornaments.  I did look for my fancy ornament hangers but it's 100 degrees in the garage, so you will have to imagine!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
