Add Texture and Depth to Your Scrapbook Pages with Liquid Applique

uchida liquid applique Embellish with Liquid AppliqueLiquid Applique is a fun three-dimensional way to embellish your scrapbook pages.  This treatment helps lift segments up off your page.  The liquid applique procedure helps give character to your stamps, letters, die cut shapes, and free-hand writing (names, word, or phrases).  You can highlight specific areas of a shape, a picture or other die cut embellishments.  The applique will help lift up items like candles on a cake.

How to Apply Liquid Applique:

  • The fine tip of the Liquid Applique allows you to apply the product sparingly.
  • Gently squeeze the tube over the area you wish to applique.  Fill in the area as needed.
  • If writing use the applique as you would a pen–being sure to not over do it.
  • Liquid Applique requires drying time–overnight for best results–use a heat gun to speed the drying process if you wish.
    • Be careful not to over heat or scorching will occur.  The applique can also become uneven or lose its adhering property to the paper.
  • Add scrapbook extra fine scrapbook glitter to give the item a “sparkle look.”  This application should be done before drying or after heating.

Like so many other scrapbook ideas and products, you will be well served to experiment with this Liquid Applique product and technique a little.  Using scrap pieces first will help you eliminate not being happy with your effort on a page you’d prefer not to have your experiment on.  This is a fun technique, but Liquid Applique should be used in moderation.
