NEW Dreamweaver Stencils

We are glad to inform you that we now carry Dreamweaver Stencils.  Stencils are the easiest and fastest way of doing Metal Embossing.  They are ideal for cards, embellishments and any small and easy to do project!

Stencils can be used with any metal, but Colored Aluminum seems to be the perfect match. In this case I used  Standing Angel LL578 stencil  and  MercArt's Navy Blue Aluminum plus the following:
*Teflon D-01 or D-04
*Dash Wheel (texture in the skirt)
*Crown Stamping Tool (3 flower petals)
*Cup and Ball #2 (flower's centers and wing's dots)
*Small Star with Center Stamping Tool  (5 small skirt's stars)
*Refiner (wing's textures)
*Diagonal Decorative Wheel (upper robe texture)
*Regular and Medium Star Stamping Tool  (stars in the sky)
*Big Wheel (border dots)
*Paper Stump #4
*The cloud texture was given with the LJ863 Swirls Stencil.  Just rub with a paper stump the front of the aluminum against the stencil to get the texture.
When you finish,  remove the color with a (manicure)sanding block. Use the Fiber Glass Tool or the Brass Brush to remove it in small or detailed areas, just as I did in the Angel's face, hair and part of her robe.

  3. Patrice:We just need your address to send you the prize! You can mail it to me at msofia@mercartusa.com. Congratulations!

  4. Your pieces are so beautiful! I seem to have problems using the wheels. I am kind of wobbly.

  5. Thank you "Burning Rubber"!. My suggestions when using the wheels: Use them on the suede so the design leaves a deep impression. Press kind of hard so they don't move everywhere.I feel more control when I roll them forward (some people do it backwards and it doesn't work too well). And...Practice.
