Fantasy Fusion – the technique


Did you miss Leann’s shows on Tuesday and wonder what Fantasy Fusion is all about? If so, I’m here to help!

Sheena has launched a new range of three rubber stamp sets: Circle & Oval, Hearts & Tags and Squares & Rectangles. Each has been designed to perfectly fit on the mountboard shapes launched with the rest of the Paint Fusion range last year.

This launch has also been teamed with the launch of some new specialist paints from Pebeo, which create gorgeous effects on all manner of surfaces including metal, porcelain terracotta, ceramic, canvas, glass and wood. There are three paint sets to choose from (warms, cools and neutrals) and each includes seven pots of paint, cerne relief and pipettes – all the tools you’ll need to create gorgeous home decor and gift ideas!

So, how do you make the gorgeous samples you’ve been seeing over the last few days? Well, if you’ve got the stamps too, you can simply stamp out the image you want to use, which is then used as an outline for the Fantasy Fusion image. Trace around the ink with the cerne relief, and wait for this to dry. Then, simply fill in the sections with your chosen paint colour, using the end of a paintbrush (or your pipettes for a controlled decorative effect) to drop the colour in the right place. As the paint dries, the colours will merge and create a glorious enamel effect. Simple!

So what are you waiting for? Start your Fantasy Fusion-ing today! Don’t forget to send us pictures of your creations – we’d love to see how you’ve been using your paints!
