3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / My first ATCs - Set of 5 on: September 12, 2009 12:07:27 PM
I've recently came accross the ATC thing while surfing the net and I was so excited, I needed to start making my own! So after lunch I made this first set, I called it "Pink Vintage" for obvious reasons xD
I didn't have many materials at hand, just a few pics I managed to print and my color pencils and some scrap papers... Anyway, I'll try to do better the next time. Hope you like them ^^

I think what's happening is that you're breaking up the charcoal with the brushing on of the second layer. 
Your bits of charcoal had just been dropped onto the first layer, right, and basically left alone (so they'd mostly be stuck to and in the clear finish), but adding the second layer meant the charcoal got pushed around, I'm assuming, during application so it broke up into finer powder?  (Some other white "mediums" probably wouldn't break apart so easily.)


Here are some suggestions for powdered sugar from my Miniatures page, in the Foods section:

...for very thin icing with areas of whiteness... I buy white charcoal sticks from the art store (near the black charcoal)... you could also use a hard white dry pastel pencil or stick
......I just dab a little TLS liquid clay on the surface of the food, grate the charcoal with a razor blade, and then bake... if some comes off (which it will), after you glaze/varnish it just throw on some powdered charcoal while it's wet

...powdered sugar
.....Nora Jean scraped bits from a white pastel pencil with an Xacto onto her jelly-filled donut...had rubbed liquid clay there to hold them on, then rebaked 
........other sticky surfaces to hold the sugar could be white glue, a clear acrylic finish, glycerin, wet paint, etc, all of which would dry, not have to be cured
http://www.norajean.com/Food/Donut/JellyFilled-008.htm
......or could try white chalk scrapings ...other white powders (drop them from a seive to keep from clumping?).... or white embossing powder (heated)
......iampoison used scrapings from white charcoal stick for drawing
......or "spray" dots of white acrylic paint onto the top area with a toothbrush... could mask areas where don't want speckling

(there are also suggestions for making faux granulated sugar on that same page, if you're interested:

....click on Donuts, etc.)


HTH,

Let's see. Once my fimo piece is baked, I apply a thin layer of fimo varnish and then I add charcoal "sugar" to it. I need to add another layer of varnish because I think the sugar will go away, but once I add the last layer the sugar seems to "dissolve" or something. Help? Tips? Thanks a lot!
