Decorated switch plate cover with Fantasy Film and Opals embossing enamel

See more things you can do with this technique!

I collect carnival glass, so I like the way these look in the rooms where I have it displayed. ~ Zeborah

I coated a plastic switch plate cover with Versa Mark ink and covered it with black (Currawong) Opals embossing enamel.
Then I hit it with my heat gun. I like using the Heat It! Craft tool for working with embossing enamels.

While the Opals are nice and hot - lay down a piece of Fantasy Film.
It will adhere to the molten Opals.
Add a layer of clear Opals (Franklin).
This will give the finished piece more depth and sparkle.

Press a stamp into it while it is still hot for an interesting pattern.

Use a hot knife or soldering iron to trim the edges and clear the center space and the holes for the screws.
This is a different switch plate- I didn't get a photo of the green one at this step. ;)

You can use Fantasy Film on the switch itself- or decorate with coordinating craft paints or metallic markers.
