Camp Iwannascrap 2014 Water Wonders: Modeling Paste

Hi Campers!  Today we're going to play with modeling paste!  Yippee!

Modeling paste is an acrylic polymer that you can use to create amazing texture on your lay outs and cards.  It can be mixed with acrylic paint to color it before applying, and once dry it can be painted over with acrylics, water colors, inks... all kinds of stuff.  So it's a very versatile medium to play with.

Modeling paste is also called molding paste by Golden Artist Colors.  When I looked up what the difference was, I found out there really isn't any.  According to Golden's website, Mr. Golden just carried "molding paste" over from a similiar product, but it's basically the same thing.  (Apparently he also used it to fill a dent in his car bumper... oh, those creative types!  lol)

I have another video tutorial for you, but I'll warn you that it's a little on the long side (7 minutes).  The first half is the modeling paste technique and the second half is an insight into my crazy process.  Here you go:

And here is the finished LO:

As I mentioned in the video, I did this for the Everything's Coming Up Roses Challenge at Scrappin' Peeps.  The pink roses were made using a tutorial found at Stacy Cohen's blog.
