Lightly sand a white domino until the sheen is gone. Add Gesso (white) to the top and sides. When dry, paint with a stipple brush using Lumiere paints ( Pearl Magenta 573 and Sunset Gold 554). “Teapots on Table” is stamped on the domino using black Brilliance ink. Heat set the image. Stamp the alphabet letters and numbers, “TEA 4 2″ on white tissue paper with black Brilliance ink, heat set and cut the letters out as one unit. Using a soft brush, apply PPA to domino, place”TEA 4 2” on the domino. Apply another coat of PPA on top of the tissue. At this point, the letter should almost be disappearing, but some of the tissue will show. When dry, stamp on the sides of the domino with names of different types of tea. Pink Crystal Lacquer was then applied to the top and all sides which takes a couple of hours to dry. Tiny beads can be sprinkled into the Lacquer to give it more glitter. Tiny green beads were used in this sample. Domino by Lee Ann Atencio.
“Horse Portrait” was stamped on a prepared domino with a black “Staz-on” stamp pad. A fine tip brown Sharpie was used to add highlights to the stamped image. Preparing the domino was done by bleaching it and letting it dry. Next, it was stippled with a mix of White Pearl Lumiere mixed with some Copper Pearl Ex. It was edged with a Sharpie bold-tip gold pen. Domino by Chris Coslet.
Domino preparation: Lightly sand a white domino until the sheen is gone. Add Gesso (white) to the top and sides. When dry, paint with a stipple brush using Lumiere paints (colors metallic olive green 562, Sunset Gold 554 and Metallic Russet 566). “Kokopelli #3”, “Mimbreno Deer Hunter”, “Mimbreno Swallows” were stamped onto white tissue paper with black Brilliance ink. Using a soft brush, PPA was applied on the domino and Kokopelli was applied, then bits/pieces cut out of these stamps were applied. Heat set the images before applying another coat of PPA over the tissue. On the sides of the domino, the words, “Apache” and “Mimbres” were stamped using alphabet stamps. On the ends, stamp “AND”. Heat set the words and apply Crystal Lacquer. Any color can be used; however green was used in this sample. It takes several hours to lacquer the top and all the sides. The sample shown here is a minibus gift box and the domino was used for the main focus on the top of the box. Gift box by Lee Ann Atencio.
