Lumiere Resist Challenge
SAMPLES---http://twopeasinabucket.kaboose.com/pg.asp?set=recent&gallery=3&cmd=display&layout_id=1242279

Make one item that includes a Lumiere resist background.
Supplies needed: Lumiere (perhaps a gold, pearl white, or silver if you are only buying one color). Dye ink, glossy white paper, popsicle stick or something to stir paint, a pallete something like a coated paper plate/ recycled CD etc; about a foot of cheap plastic wrap or a piece of plastic grocery bag; sponge or brayer; tissue.
To create a resist background:
1. Use something like a wooden popsicle stick to stir the Lumiere paint and then place a doable about the size of nickel on a coated paper plate, a CD disk or the like.
2. Wad up a small amount of plastic wrap (stiffer is better).The wrinkles in the plastic will add interest to your background. So hold it in your hand like a stamp bounce it back and forth between the paint and add your glossy white card stock.. To regulate the coat of paint I generally lightly tap off some next to the paint doable after each coating. The background will have a significant amount of white space when completed. I use a heat gun to set the paint and insure any thick areas are completely dry.
3. You may choose to use a sponge or a rubber brayer to cover your background with dye ink. Immediately after covering with ink take a tissue and gently shine paper in a circular motion, removing ink from the Lumiere. Your background is then ready for use.
This technique is sometime called Faux Mother of Pearl when pearl white Lumiere is used…but all the metallic colors make great backgrounds so don’t limit yourself when working with this fun resist technique. The finished product will definitely produce a classy look..

If you have trouble finding Lumiere-you might check the local JoAnn’s. In there fabric painting aisle they carry prepackaged sets of 6 bottles of paint for about $12…but I am sure you can find a coupon.

This challenge is Open Until Saturday, October 13, 2007 Noon-EST. Shortly thereafter I will randomly select one participant to win the Santa Claus UM stamp. All entries should be posted in the gallery if possible and include SOF-Lumiere Resist in the title...if we have technical issues you can post a link on my blog to your card or I will be happy to post it for you.
If I can answer any questions please leave a note here.
Happy Stamping!…Far North (Jan)

Jan, I have a question about this technique - well, there always has to be one right? - the paint is not meant to be thick and bobbly is it? And in your lovely leaf example the background is black : does that mean you have sponged black dye ink over the top of the Lumiere?

I will have a go at this in the week although I think the only colour I have is a pink/gold colour!

So sorry Penny I was not clear. The black behind the leaf is plain black glossy cardstock...the layer behind that is the lumiere resist. The lumiere is acrylic paint which of course is thicker than the ink we are familiar with using. So initally it can cling to the plastic so much that you may not get defination of white spaces...that's why I bounce a little off before stamping on the cardstock. Also if it is too thick and you go to heat set you may think you are doing a halloween experiment as it will begin to bubble, bubble and just bring on toil and trouble...LOL. On the leaf card the lumiere is the gold color and the dye ink is rusty orange. On santa's background side panel the gold/white is lumiere and the green is dye ink.

Jan, thank you so much for posting the tutorial on this technique. I've had some Lumiere paints for a while, but didn't know what to do with them. This could not have been easier, and it's very effective. Here's my card.

New technique for me too. I had to literally dust off my box of Lumiere paints, lol. It was so easy and I love the look. I did 2 and one is not exactly what you asked for but it came out well. I plastic wrap pounced the Lumiere through a stencil- one of those kids books of stencils from Dover. It came out looking more 'organic' and textural with the plastic wrap so I know I will try that again. Thanks Jan for this new to me technique.

So sorry for the late entry-had troubles uploading last night. I finally got my lumiere here in the house with me. It was so much fun! I used halo blue gold lumiere with Peacock brilliance ink brayered over it. Thanks for a fun challenge technique, Jan. Here is my turtle card.
