Nique o’ the Day – Surface and texture redux

I went back to some old techiques for surface decoration on paper yesterday – one technique is to apply metallic liquid acrylic onto paper through a squirt bottle, then spray it with gold paint while it is still wet and let it dry.

I also ran a sheet of joss paper through a crimper – we used to use real paint tube crimpers, but since this technique was discovered, manufacturers are making “corrugators” on purpose. The effect is nice, though. I’ll use these both on the new covers I’m starting tonight.
