I was a bit reluctant to sign up for the Creative Chemistry class. It is boring to follow a class if you don't have the products talked about. But it has been ok so far. Some of the techniques talked about I can not follow, but I really like to learn more about how the inks reacts and behave.
Todays was day 5 of the lessons and todays topic was Distress Stains. I have 2 of those, they are both supposed to be of the color Walnut stain, but they are not.... I bought my first Distress Stain in september. Did not really know how to use it, so it was put away. When I took it out to try it a few months later - it had turned green...... I e-mailed Ranger and they sent me a new one - no questions asked. I call that customer services!
Anyway, that left me with two Distress Stains - one dark brown and one dark green. Not a lot to play with :) So I decided to go buy myself some - that turned out to be some of the most dissapointing shoppingtrip ever! We have 2 crafting shops in my town - and non of them have Distress stains. And they were not interested in taking them in either......
So, I must say "Shame on you Hobbyhimmelen"!
So I just had to do my best, trying out the techniques and when I could not follow - I faked it :) Maybe I actually made up a couple of techniques myself -
"Hey Tim - wanna learn some?" *LOL*
Tim is showing us 3 tags every day, I have not been a good student, so I have only finished this one so far.
Thanks for stopping by!
