Something Different Saturday...New

Happy Saturday,

I thought you might like a sneak peak of one of the products I was demoing at the trade show last weekend.  All of these projects are made using the Brand New Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish which, for me at least, is a revolutionary product.  It works with paper, MDF and so many other surfaces it blends colours, coats evenly ( without need of a base coat) and has its own unique applicator in the lid.  There will be more of this when the polish is available in shops later this month or early in march and I am haloing to demo it on Hochanda as soon as possible.  But I thought you might like to see some go the creations I gave made before that as they are very different for me!

They are all based on the new MDF driftwood pack and I have used one pice form the six ( of 2 different sizes) that come in the pack.  The pack is designed to to used all together to create a panel however I just loved the shoe of the individual pieces that I used one per project ( cheap aren't i? lol)  I believe the MDF is already winging its way to the shops along with the stamps I have used in the projects as well as the MDF shapes that match each set.

The above piece, which features the seaside MDF shapes as well as matching stamps, uses three of the colours of Polish and shows how they bland and the stunning effects you can get easily.  Heres I have used one of the new mini masks as well as stamping and PVA to make the sea feel realistic.

Finally another piece that has ended up in my home using the sentiment form my Lily of the Valley set haloing with the MDF seagulls and driftwood.

I hope you like this difference I have a few more pieces including a Seahorse stable to show when the polish is released.

Don't forget I am back on Hochanda tonight at 8pm with the One Day Special featuring my favourite dies from the Sue Wilson designs realised in November.  I will be demonstrating the orange blossom flowers and leaves box I made a few weeks ago that everyone keeps asking about.  Shows continue tomorrow at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and last chance at 7pm.  Hochanda is on freeview 39, Sky 663 and freest 819 as well as online live in HD at

  19. Eh up John
    These are marvellous and would cost a fortune in a seaside boutique. Would be ideal for folks making home decor pressies.
    Had to snigger a bit at my dimness. When you told me you had been working with driftwood, I thought you'd been beachcombing on your travels lol! Didn't realise it was MDF but wow, it looks realistic!
    Looking forward to the shows.
