The product used to create the bg is called Liquid Metal but not the true metal look I was hoping for. This was my first time using it. The liquid was mixed in some white gesso and spread on a stencil, then I placed white layering weight cs on top and pressed. Fussy cut one edge and trimmed to fit the white base. The sentiment was cut on Silhouette and paint brush with Liquid Metal. Once dry, the words were heat embossed twice with clear then glued on. To try and get the look of welding slag, I splattered silver acrylic paint and painted the center of some of the gears.
