VIDEO: How To Use Your Acrylic Skin Shape – Gel Print Card

 

If you saw my Wednesday Art video this week then you will know that I promised you a project idea for your acrylic skin shapes! Have you made one yet? Or is that today’s project? Well, if you have made your acrylic skin shape or you are about to make it then here is a project idea for using it and also some tips on how to attach it to your project too.  I only point this out because it isn’t always obvious how to actually stick the acrylic skin down as not everything will work, so watch the video and stick around to the end to find out more! Also in this video today I have some gel printing for you as I know how much you love it!

The supplies I have used are listed below and of course there is a close-up photo of the project too!
