TLS with white pigment added

TLS with white pigment added

Post by Peggy & Bo » Fri, 30 Oct 1998 04:00:00



I just ordered some LS for the 1st time.  I had wanted the
white LS to do transfers. I was informed that people are
making their own white by adding white oil-based paint to TLS.
How much do I add? What is the best paint? Will I still be
able to get good transfers?
Can I get transfers on the TLS without the white pigment
added?

Thanks all,
Peggy

I have got a buncha questions about this stuff and never remember to
ask.

I have a pretty "wedding ring" gold polymer paint in a tube...if I mixed
a tiny bit of it with LS, would I get a transparent coating with just a
hint of gold to it?  Or would I get just a puddle with blobs of
gold...does it accept *all* paints gracefully?

Second, is it possible to do a marbleizing with it?   Can I put some in
a medicine bottle, put color on top, and then dip a snake of polymer in
and out to make a marble coating?

Why are all my ideas coming when I can't take time out to *try* them????

Hi Kelley,
  I don't put acrylics into LS because LS is oil based and if you add
enough,the water will turn to steam in the oven and cause problems.
However,Marie Segal has been able to tint LS with acrylics-no problem at all.
Since you only want a hint of color,I think it would be fine. Only way to know
is to try it!
  Nan Roche does marbilising with LS and showed how to do it in a summer issue
of Bead and Button.
