Just learned about a technique called reverse stamping, where you combine the techniques of DIY decals (which I’ve mentioned before) and stamping plates to come up with almost a stained glass effect. Yes, I’m a little behind, it’s been out in nail blogs for about a year and a half, but it’s never too late to learn something new.
When I followed all the links back to what seems to be the original design, I found 3 new blogs to follow and great examples of this technique. Follow me through the rabbit hole…
1) Start with Sarah at Chalkboard Nails, who just posted this example of the technique.
2) The tutorial she used was from Drama Queen Nails, who posted this mini-tutorial on Instagram (full version on her blog).
Super condensed tutorial time! Yay! Start by painting squares of topcoat onto baking paper. Let dry. Stamp on your image. Let dry for ages! Colour in your image. Let dry. Peel off the baking paper and…. FLIP! Shazam! Cut your image to size and stick to nail with basecoat. Press gently to flatten. Let dry. Topcoat. Go to the blog for the extended tutorial 🙂 Stamp stamp stamp…who is going to give this a go? #nails #nailart #aussienails #tutorial
3) She learned the technique from the tutorial by Shatter Me Claire…
4) …who modified the technique (to make it easier) from what seems to be the original: this Nailz Craze tutorial (mini-tutorial below, full version on the blog).
Have you tried this technique? How did it turn out?
