Project Grenadine

Introduction


Welcome to Project Grensdine, for this project we have chosen Uroboros Grenadine Red Granite Ripple and Dichroic Slide - Far Out. In this demonstration we will show you how to use Dichroic Slide and its benefits. Dichroic slide is a dichroic film on paper which when soaked in water peals away from the paper base as a very thin transfer. The advantage of dichroic slide is that you are able to cut out complex shapes and use craft punches that are not possible with a sheet of dichroic glass.

We trust that you will find the project informative and share it with friends on facebook and on your pinterest pages
