April 6- 10, and April 17-23 we are restricting access to the 'Crafty Supplies' section of the shop due to exhibiting at shows, which upsets our stock control. We are also closed for general order processing during these periods.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, normal service resumes from Monday 24th April.
Infusions are water soluble particles with 2 components: dye colour pigment suitable for paper/ fabric mixed with Walnut stain.
The colour powder particles dissolve faster than the walnut crystals, so you can control how much colour-to-brown stain ratio you get by:
1. the amount of water you apply, and
2. when you apply water (before or after sprinkling the powders) and
3. how soon you dry the wet paper or fabric after applying water.
Blotting before drying will produce a softer result.
Make the product permanent by using with PaperArtsy glazes instead of water, or add gum arabic to the mix as another 'binding' option.
Available in 12 unique colours. They are sold in small bottles with aluminium caps. To dispense, simply poke a hole in the cap and sprinkle in the concentration of your preference. RRP £2.40 (Including VAT)
How to set up your infusions bottles for use is explained clearly in this video by Scrapcosy on YouTube.
There are also videos from Vicky (Clips and Cuts) who has made 2 fabulous journal pages with JoFy stamps and infusions here and here . She explains clearly how to use infusions with glazes for a more permanent background.
