I went to my LSS store yesterday, and they were having a class on this, I asked the lady what is inka gold?? she showed me, made in Germany has to be good LOL kidding... I saw the samples of what they were making in the class and thought this is cool. I googled it but not too much info on with it doing papercrafting just glass and metal etc... Has anyone used this for papercrafting, I see that its a paste type in little jars, but something new, it looks cool, but do I NEED it LOL.


Thanks,

I haven't heard of it, but it sounds like it might be fun to use! Would love to know more. Do you know how they were using it?

i didnt know about the class but only found one thing on youtube, where the lady was using an aqua brush and was painting in the stamped image.\

then she embossed the back ground and was using a smearing technique to pop it out.

I saw this product when I was watching the Ten Second Studio videos. It was gorgeous stuff.

I googled it and found this video tutorial about using different media with stencils. Inka Gold was the last one used. You can scroll down and see three cool examples that have been posted on the blog post. In the video, Barbara suggests using it on top of other wet media. On the blogpost, the last example shows that you can stamp on top of it.

Now I'm off to check out Nazzy's links.

Cool thread!

ETA: Nazzy, I'm glad you linked the site with the general information about the product. I loved the background in the video about watercoloring with Inka Gold.

I loved this product at first. Old Silver is my favorite color. Unfortunately it dried up completely, even when tightly capped. I tried adding water, but it just wasn't the same. Disappointed!

It looks great rubbed on die cuts - used Old Silver here on the TH clock.

Molly, that's such a cool card!

It's disappointing that the product dried up. I came back to post this video that shows the basics and gives lots of tips about how to use it and this one that shows more techniques and tips. However, if it's going to dry up in the closed jar, then it's off my Wish List.

Thanks,
Daria

Molly awesome card. thanks for letting me know that it dries up.

Thanks for the links Daria, i love the stencils that she used in the first video. i am watching the other video now... maybe this will get me out of my box on the cards i do now.

one video i found, that they had smaller sizes too about the size as what the shimmerz comes in, so don't know if that would be better, i don't know where that would be available or still is not sure how old the video was.

i think i may get some but today is such a nice day out, just came back from a walk.

thanks Galz!

Hi, Nazzy! Thanks for the shout-out, Jan!

I used Inka Gold to finish a wood frame and to decorate papier mache boxes, as shown on my blog here: http://bit.ly/UfxoON (same link that Jan posted).

I got mine at Artistcellar.com, before I started on their Design Team. I have the Copper, Rose, and Green Yellow colors and I'm hoping to also get Old Silver, Hematite, and Gold soon.

Inka Gold is made with beeswax and you use it kind of like a paste wax - only it is a paint and buffs to a metallic shine. You can use it on porous surfaces like paper, chipboard, canvas, ribbons, polymer clay or air dry clay.

super work Anne, some great ideas :grin

i did go back and she practically sold out of it, and told me of an actual scrap to have the last rose colour LOL

i ended up getting red, dark greek and old yellow. i have them up stairs but the red and green are dark, i guess i am set for xmas with those colours LOL.. i will go and try to do some tomorrow.

for using on paper which paper would be best to use it on.

I recall seeing it used but I don't remember where. But I DO recall thinking that it was expensive.
