Manly Metal Mission

Hello and servus!

My stave rhyme (I LOVE alliterations, you know? ;) post title already indicates what my new project as the RGD (Resident Guest Designer) at Our Creative Corner is all about: manly metal - in this case needed for a males birthday present wrap up.

Nothing too elaborate or complicated this time - just a short tutorial on how to create faux metal from nothing but card, paints and some painting techniques.

Sometimes I find it important to focus on the simpler techniques again instead of always chasing the next, even more elaborate and complicated mixed media technique. And to be honest: it isn't about the techniques in the first place - it is about what one creates with them and about enjoying some creative fun.

So get some card out, your most liked industrial embossing folders and metallic paints and create some manly metal makes! Hope to see you over at Our Creative Corner!

Hugs and happy crafting,


  1. This is amazing Claudia! Off I go to see how you created it! hugs :)

  2. Ganz deiner Meinung, liebe Claudia, einfach und klar und genau das Richtige als Idee zum Männergeburtstag, super gelungen!! LG Kerstin xx
