Pebeo Prisme - a New Idea

The book has been launched on an unsuspecting world and I am a happy bunny. The folk on the Workshop on the Web Members' Facebook page are posting some of their results and it is great fun to see them all.


I had a query on the Pebeo Prisme tiles. I use these in the book as a header bar for one of my story panels but they are great for all purposes -  I am currently working on a little book with a patterned surface of Prisme. This will be one of the first free lessons, early in the New Year at  (www.d4daisy,com), for those who have the book. This is how the header looks - with two inch tiles.



I use a product called Cerne relief around the edges. This dries to give a hard raised edging to the tile and allows a deeper application of the Prisme paint. It occurred to me that PVA might work just as well as the relief paint and this is what I did:

Painted a thin coat of PVA over a Twinchie (mountboard square) to give a sealed surface and allowed this to dry.



Either ‘pipe’ a line of PVA around the edge (if your PVA pot had a fine nozzle - mine doesn't) or paint a thick line of it on non-stick baking paper. Push the edge of the tile into the PVA to give a raised border.










Repeat with other sides, holding the tile in the centre for the last side (or you will get very sticky). When all sides are edged with PVA, allow to dry thoroughly.













Then rub some metallic wax, quite thickly, over the PVA edges. Gold paint would possibly work just as well, but I haven't tried it yet.






When coloured to your liking, apply some of the Pebeo Prisme paints to the centre, using a kebab or cocktail stick.


After a short time, before the paint is quite dry, prop it up against a very slightly raised surface - I've just used another tile. The paint will slowly drag as it moves a little, to give an interesting effect.





Lots more like this in the book, folks.

I like the look of this. Must try and find myself some of those tiles.

Yes, I like the tiles. I know it's a bit lazy when one can cut up mountboard, but it's just so much quicker to have them to hand.

I love the tiles also, and it is not lazy to find some tiles already cut to size....part of our art is using "stuff" to create it.
