Adirondack Colourwash Batik effect

7:44:00 AM

This is one of my favourite techniques to do with Adirondack Colourwash from Ranger. I love the effect and how you can change things around and experiment for different looks. It also comes in a huge variety of colours so you can really go to town. A simple layout but with a nice technique adding some interest.


1. First stamp your image or lettering onto cream mulberry paper with Versamark.
2. Heat emboss with clear embossing powder until the powder is fully melted.
3. Place the mulberry paper on your craft sheet and spray the mulberry paper liberally with the Colourwash of your colour until it is fully saturated.
4. Once the Colourwash is dry, cover the embossed areas with a piece of scrap paper and iron with a very hot iron.
5. Check to see if the embossing powder has melted totally by trying to lift the scrap paper. If the paper lifts then you are done - if not keep on ironing.
6. Cover a piece of white cardstock with a glue stick and adhere the embossed and coloured mulberry piece to the white cardstock.
7. Use on your project as desired.
