The Silver Skull Crypt Techniques and Video

Happy Friday Everybody!

Hope your morning is off to a GREAT start.  Thank you all for the wonderful comments on my Carriage Clock.  I cannot wait to get y'all started on that because it really isn't that hard to do and it's really fairly quick to make.  So, I will start writing that this weekend. Actually I'll be making some for thank you gifts!  Can't wait to use different papers to see the different effects I can get.  Why do things like that excite me?  LOL!

This morning I wanted to share with those who had emailed me, the technique I used on the Silver Skull Crypt side panels.  I did a little video on it last night and uploaded it to YouTube.  Please note that  I'm still feeling a bit....sickly so accept my apologies for sounding crummy.....Grab a kleenex!  :)




Thanks for coming by this morning!  Have an awesome Friday!  Yahoooo!

  12. Thanks for the tutorial. I have used the foil tape with good success. Got mine in the paint section at big box home improvement store. Once you start with this technique you will want to start covering everything, lol.

  13. Honestly Jim, you're a hoot. I chuckled throughout this video....clearly being sick causes the pistons to miss-fire. I should know since I'm suffering from the same crud. Get well soon.
