There are several types of tools that are used when making a picture,to make it easier i will split them up into categories The obvious one of course is your picture/print.You will need minimum of 5 exact copies of the same print. Cutting tools Dependant on your preference you can use a blade and cutting mat or decoupage scissors which come in different designs. I prefer working with tweezer scissors (as shown below in pic 1) unlike normal scissors you can cut with the tips of the blades which i will cover this more later in 2.Cutting(part 1). 1
Although not everyone shapes there work i do as i think the effects in the finished product speak for themselves. i will let you decide for yourself later.
the tools you need are : a piece of foam matting ie funky foam
various sizes of embossing tools
and a hockey stick shaping tool (see pic 2)
also helpful is a pricking tool for cutting out awkward corners.
Again this is down to preference and will be covered later!
flocking,glitter,flower soft etc
clean paint brush (pic 3)
ballpoint glue pen
and ice cream straw (has wide end like shovel)
In order to build up the picture you will need:
Silicone glue clear
wooden skewers x3
small square of card
