Blue Faux Leather


This video shows my technique in creating faux leather. I watched several YouTube videos, but developing my own recipe except instead of using glycerin & water as I planned, I used body lotion because I have no patience and did not have the time to go retrieve the glycerin from my personal inventory. And to my pleasant surprise, the body lotion worked great!!! This technique is very easy and you can make it with any color and use other wet paint media products to get your desired look.

Creating faux leather is one of my favorite techniques to do and I love using it to create envelopes, book covers, backgrounds for my ATCs and to mat pictures in my art journals and altered book projects.
