Faux Soldering With Diction Stickers
I created a series of videos to walk you through the process by which I created the canvases and the "faux soldered" accents on each one. The "Elements" and "Diction" word stickers are the finishing touch!
I recently learned how to create soldered jewelry for the very first time and I love the look but I don't have all the supplies at home to create pieces for myself. I knew the Epiphany Crafts Round 25 tools would be perfect for me to create my own faux soldered "glass" charms and it would be much easier than working with real glass. With real glass, adhesive has to be limited because the intense heat from the soldering iron will make it bubble and burn, damaging the image under the glass. The Authentique Paper "Elements" and "Diction" stickers I love so much would be a no-go for use with soldered glass pieces, however, they work beautifully with the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio.
With the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio I found that I could add stickers and small bits of ephemera, like a tiny dictionary paper diecut, to my epoxy without fear of them burning. I layered the Authentique Paper "Elements" and "Diction" stickers onto paper from the Blissful and Free Bird Series while the paper was in the "view-finder" area of the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio, placing the Bubble Cap on top to create the epoxy shapes.
