Metal Breakdown

That mini album I made for Dublin – the one with no photos – gave rise to not one, not two, but three video tutorials for Gauche Alchemy. The first one showed the structure of the mini. I think we missed the second one, about getting messy with paint and textures of backgrounds. (You can see them all here.)

And then there’s the third, about how to achieve a faux metal look from foil paper:

The Gauche Alchemy team is riding high at the moment – there are lots of achievements, great techniques and fabulous little projects going on, so if you’re feeling stuck for inspiration or fancy trying something new, pop over to the GA blog.

That's all for now!


  1. Great tutorial, good idea as well, I suppose you could use stazon or alcohol inks as well to cover the foil. The possibilities are endless. I am thinking about stamping on in first and using it on smooth card.

  2. Awesome tutorial as always Cheryl! I love the look of the foil on the cardboard!
