Fun with Brusho Crystals

Posted by Janice Upton on

Wendy started by covering the frame with White Gesso, then building it up with modelling paste and stencils, layering on lace, muslin, torn book pages, doilies, Art Stones, flowers etc which she attached with Prima's Heavy Body Gel.



Once this had dried she then sprinkled Brusho Crystals around the frame where she wanted colour, then sprayed with water to activate. Wendy also added more colour by mixing some Brushos up in a plate (plastic) and adding with a paint brush.


Then when dry Wendy highlighted some of the embellishments with Finnabair's Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint - Ancient Coin.  You could also use Finnabair's waxes to highlight embellishments.



It's gorgeous and waiting for a photo to finish it off.

NOTE: Brusho Crystals are a die and will stain your clothes so please be careful.

Wendy also made a lovely card using the Brusho Crystals.....

by using watercolour cardstock she wet the card with a spritzer bottle then, sparingly, sprinkled some of the crystals on. She placed a metal die on the card and left it to dry (may take a couple of hours depending how wet the card is) and that is how she got the pattern on the top left and bottom right corners of the card. She also coloured the seam binding and flowers with the same colour crystals, achieving different depths of colour by adding more crystals or flooding with more water. 

Thanks for dropping by, hope you give something like this a go.  If you have any questions please give me a call (027 447 2425) or email me at
