Adding Texture with Liquid Applique

Adding texture to a project with Liquid Applique 101
By Deonna Bemish

Supplies needed:

Image or Stamp- I used a My Bestie digital image called “
Liquid Applique- Marvy Uchida
Embossing Heat Tool

Liquid applique can be used on  fabric or paper to give the image a 3D effect. I love to use it to make wool or fur. It comes in numerous different colors also.

I colored my image first with copic markers, leaving the sheep uncolored where I am applying the liquid Applique as the “Wool”

1.  Remove the lid of the Liquid applique and make sure that it isn’t plugged up and flows freely when gently squeezed. A straight pin works well to unplug.
2. In a “dotting motion” apply the liquid applique to the sheep until completely covered . *Try to avoid your black lines of the image so that you can see where you are working. 
3.  Allow the liquid applique to dry (Overnight is recommended but a few hours is okay when using on paper.)
4.  After dry, use your heat tool to “heat” your liquid applique and watch it puff up.  Do not overheat or it will turn brown when scorched.
5. That’s it, Create your card as desired.
