Art Studio: Modeling Paste meets Cards


Art StudioMerry Christmas Cliquies!

Melissa here with you today and I’m sharing a fun medium you can incorporate on your cards. I’ve used modeling paste several times on layouts and it’s such a fun, artsy way to add some texture and interest to a page. Cards might seem like too small of a canvas to work with but, I’m here to show you that modeling paste, with the right embellishments and the perfect stencil, works fabulous on cards as well!

I’ve created a Let’s Make Cards with Melissa video that showcases how I applied the modeling paste. Unfortunately, I failed to take step by step photos so, if you want to see the process, just check out the video at the bottom of this post.


How cool is that? Do you see all the texture with the modeling paste?

I use Liquitex Light Modeling Paste for all my paper projects. It has a really cool, and light, texture to it that works great on paper. The stencil shape you see me using is actually a cut file from the January kit, that you can fine here. (Printables and cut files are exclusive to kit subscribers!) I cut it onto some scrap card stock and placed it on my card.

Then, I used a palette knife to smooth on the modeling paste.

Easy peasy.


Alright, I’m going to leave you with the process video so you can see everything come together. I also share a few more tips in the video.

Thanks for joining me today!
