New Black Craft Plastic

Introductions are necessary, I have a new crafting surface to share with you. Opaque black craft plastic has just been released by Grafix and I found it to be a perfect base for pearlescent paint. It was tricky to photograph but I think you can see the shimmer in the both the paint and the gold card base. Here is a video of my process.

The craft plastic also comes in white which I’ve used successfully with alcohol inks. I can’t wait to try the new Ranger Alloy inks on the black.

Grafix gave me the opportunity to try the black craft plastic and I had fun with the alcohol inks and paint markers as well as the pearlescent paints shown here. I’ll be sharing more projects in the future and I will be asking my favourite stores if they can carry this new product.

    These tulips are so sparkly and pretty Heather and the black plastic surface shows them off beautifully. I think the pearlescent AIs would look great on this too. x

      I did try some of the pearlescent AI on it and they did look pretty. I don’t have the alloys yet but I think they will work really well.

    Sorry, I just tried to publish but am not sure what happened so here it is again. I love the look of those pretty tulips against the black plastic surface and they shine out beautifully Heather. I think the pearlescent AIs would look great on this too. x

    This is stunning Heather. The plastic surface looks smoother to paint onto than black card, even glossy card. The pearlescent paints look good on the plastic; I’m looking forward to seeing the piece with alcohol inks.

    Really gorgeous. The black plastic looks fascinating as a base, but your choice of sliver and the special paint really puts it over the top. I can’t imagine the recipient throwing this away.

    Gorgeous tulips! I love “seeing” how you created it, thanks for the video!

    I’m already thinking about ways this could be used in a Halloween card – thank you!
