No Artful CPR was Going to Save It

inka gold 3d stamp paint stencil gelli printing carolyn dube videoSo it turns out when a product comes with a lid on it, you should put said lid back on when finished using it.  You guessed it…I did not do that and shockingly it dried out!  So dried out that absolutely no artful CPR in the world was going to save it.

Did I freak out? Nope but you probably knew that.  It was just an O.O.P.S. Check out the video and my guest post over at CreateMixedMedia showing how I used it while making an art journal page on a Gelli print®.

And be prepared for a shock too…the first thing I did was cover up color with a big white spot!

    mine is dry too and I did not leave the lid off. I wet my finger and rub on the cake and then on to the paper. It works…b

    Cool, I may even dry some out on purpose! What was the glitter Paine you used?

      It is Viva’s 3D Stamp Paint Dee- so dang sparkly!

    Mine too has dried out on its own. A little water added helps some for small applications. I even had one get moldy while properly stored. Love Inca Gold’s look and effects but doesn’t seem to last long. Guess I need to spend more time creating art!

    Oh my!! Thank you so much for posting this video!! Someone sent me 12 mini jars of inka gold and they arrived all dried up! I was heartbroken but set them aside thinking “one day I will find a use for their sparklisciousness”. That day is TODAY thanks to you!!! I am going to use them up quickly using your oops method!!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
