Using Amazing Casting Resin on embossing folders is an awesome way to add texture to all sorts of projects. Here's a small canvas with just a hint of casting texture, but I believe it speaks volumes. Inspired by movie night with my son, Willy Wonka offered inspiration.

This time I knew I would be painting over the Amazing Casting Resin texture sheet, so I didn’t mix it with any Alumilite Dye or add any Alumilite Metallic Powder. Once cured, the casting resin sheet easily came off the embossing folder.

I cut it in half, glued it onto the canvas along with telephone book text. Once the glue dried I covered the texture sheet and some of the canvas in gesso.

I added multiple layer of color...

...and rub-ons, and a vintage photo...

finished off with some antiquing, inka gold and hardware...

...and Pure Imagination was finished.

Happy Creating friends! ~ Cat
