Oly*Fun Mixed Media Made Easy
Yes! Today I am showing you how easy it is to work with products and materials in a way different than they are intended. This is the first time I have worked with Fairfield and their wonderful Oly*fun material! The new metallics are gorgeous and I received very generous samples of gold, bronze, and silver. The non-metallic colours are beautiful and there are so many to choose from.
Before I forget: You could win one bolt of Oly-Fun Metallic of your color choice. (US and Canada only). Find out how to win at the end of this post!
I did use Fabri-tac to glue the fabric flowers and strips to the canvas.
My first idea was to create a very large canvas and this was my first planning session: I created a beautiful print using a gelli-plate and acrylic paints.
I used a fancy pair of scissors to create a border because it was uneven. I then used ETI (Environmental Technology, Inc) Ultra-Seal™ Multi-Purpose Sealer/Glue to seal and protect the print.
I applied one coat with my brush going vertically, and allowed it to dry. I then did another coat brushing horizontally, and allowed it to dry. Then I used the Ultra-Seal™ to adhere the print to the canvas, carefully sealing the edges. The metallic Oly*fun was cut into shapes, embossed with my Cuttlebug, and glued with the Ultra-Seal™ and then finished with another 2 coats over the entire project to seal it.
Wasn’t that fun and easy?
