Well, if you haven’t had the chance to try out different surfaces yet, I have tried it on fabric, vellum and Yupo and I’m sharing all the results to help you decide what you are going to use them on next!

I’ve got plenty of tips and tricks on how to use Distress Oxides on these different surfaces to help inspire your next card making, art journal or mixed media project. Plus some ideas for how you might want to use them in your next project.

So enjoy the video, the full supply list is below plus a link to my Distress Oxides Step By Step Art Journal video is at the end of this post too.

So what have you tried Distress Oxides on? And what will you try next? Let me know in the comments or over on the Distress Oxide video on YouTube. Have fun experimenting!

Oh and do remember that the techniques I have used today are for mixed media projects and not for decorating clothing that will be used and washed. You can’t fix Distress Oxides in fabric and it will just wash out of the fabric.

    I love the autumnal colours on this project! I'd love to try to 'distress' a bit of fabric to make a scarf for my friend's birthday. I'm definitelly going to use some rustic red and dark green, perhaps with a bit of brown. Thank you for sharing.

      I'm glad you liked it Magdalena but you might want to use fabric paint to make a scarf.

      If you use Distress Oxides as soon as the scarf is washed all the ink would come out. You can't fix it. These techniques for using Distress Oxides on Fabric are really only for use on mixed media projects that will only be used for decoration and not for any practical use.

      If you use colouring materials designed to work on fabric you will be able to fix them and they will last. There are lots of paints and pens available that are specifically for use on fabric.

      Hope that helps.
      Kim
