- I then applied black antiquing gel to the front and back using a make-up sponge. I pounced the gel on with varying thickness, but made sure to have good coverage overall and also made sure to get all the edges.
- At this point, I punched my attachment holes in my scroll.
- Once the antiquing gel was dry, I applied several layers of Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE) to the front and back.
- Be careful when applying UTEE to both sides of something...you'll basically end up with one good side and one okay side because when applying the heat to one side, the UTEE on both sides heats up. I found it was best to get the front the way I wanted it, then apply one layer to the back, heating it carefully while holding it up and away from my surface (with tweezers). This keeps the front as cool as possible while you heat the back.
- After the UTEE cooled, I pounced on Sandal Alcohol Ink to antique the color and to create a matte finish (AIs take away the glossy finish on UTEE).
