Faux Paper Casting Tutorial by Dana Tatar - You're Invited Card

I'm sharing a fun technique for Paper Wings Productions today. Creating faux paper castings using facial tissue and rubber stamps is an inexpensive alternative to true paper casting, which can take days of work and also be quite costly. With a few simple steps you can create beautiful lightweight embellishments for your craft projects!

How to Create Faux Paper Castings with Rubber Stamps and Facial Tissue by Dana Tatar

Step One: Place your stamp rubber side up on your work surface and apply ink to the stamp face. Cover the stamp with a sheet of tissue, mist lightly with water, and use a paintbrush to press the tissue down into all the areas of the stamp using an up and down motion. Note: If you choose to use facial tissue, make sure that the tissue does not contain lotion or aloe, as the layers will not hold together and you may not yield a complete image.

Step Two: Continue building layers by adding more tissue, misting with water and tapping down the tissue with the paintbrush. Four to six layers of tissue should give your paper casting enough strength.
