VIDEO | Nuvo Glacier Paste Techniques

Hello there, today I am over on the Tonic Studios Craft Room Blog today sharing three techniques using Nuvo Glacier Paste. If you haven't used Glacier Paste before, it is an embossing/texture paste filled with tons of mica flakes which give a lovey metallic/pearlescent finish.
I am sharing lots of information about the pastes over on the blog post but I also wanted to share the techniques over here on my blog too. Here is the video showing the techniques:

If you are viewing this post via email subscription, you can watch the video HERE on YouTube.
My first technique is a simple one, using Glacier Paste with stencils. Because Glacier Paste is different than other pastes, it does give a different look depending on what surface you add it to. In the video, I show an example on black cardstock. You get a completely different look!

For this tag, I used Nuvo Frostbite Glacier Paste with the Tonic Studios Linking Rings Stencil on white cardstock. As you can see, it gives a lovely metallic finish. I took the small peony from the Tonic Studios Peony Blooms Stamp Set, stamped it in black and coloured it using markers and pencils. I then fussy cut out and added it to the tag with foam tape.
The sentiment from the Tonic Studios Celebrate Sentiments Stamp Set was heat embossed in white on to black cardstock. To finish off, I added Diamond sequins from the Nuvo Golden Years Pure Sheen Sequins Collection.

The next technique also uses stencils but can be used without too. It can also be used without ink blending too, you can see that in the video above. The technique is to apply the Glacier Paste with a Blending Dauber. You cannot see much of the colour with this application, but those mica flakes really shine!

For the card, I first added a layer of Laguna Bay ink from the Nuvo Sea Siren Diamond Hybrid Ink Pads collection using a Nuvo Blending Dauber, through the Tonic Studios Petal Patten Stencil. Using the same dauber sponge, I applied Nuvo Sea Sprite Glacier Paste. Once the panel was dry it was added to an A2 white card base with foam tape.

I took the leaf image from the Tonic Studios Peony Bloom Stamp Set and heat embossed that on to vellum. It was fussy cut out and added to the card using the sentiment from the You're The Best Floral Frame Die Set to hold it in place. To finish off, I added Nuvo Ebony Gloss Crystal Drops.


You can also paint Glacier Paste on to surfaces to give a different look. This works really well if you want to add Glacier Paste to die cuts. I found the best way to do it was to add a layer first, let it dry (or heat set it) and then add another on top. You do need to leave it for 24 hours to properly dry but then it die cuts beautifully!

For this card, I added two layers of Nuvo Golden Era Glacier Paste to white cardstock using a Nuvo Paint Brush. I then die cut it out using the two inside layers of the Tonic Studios Delicate Butterfly Silhouettes Die Set. This was simply added to a white card base, with scoring lines on, with small dabs of Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.
The sentiment from the Tonic Studios Celebrate Sentiments Stamp Set was heat embossed in white on to black cardstock and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added Nuvo Ebony Black Crystal Drops.
