IAH-095-Embossed-Glue-FrameGRASONVILLE, MD – Monday morning – this pretty pastel floral frame is fun to make! Heidi developed this great technique many years ago using Aleene’s Super Thick Tacky Glue to draw the design which adds the great raised effect that is fun to color with craft chalks. Get Creative! Get Inspired! >>Tiffany

Heidi’s Glue Embossing Frame

Wood frame
Aleene’s® Super Thick Tacky Glue™
Scotch tape – ¾” to 1” wide
Spray paint – flat white
Decorator craft chalk – assorted pastel colors
Brush – hard bristle (stencil type brush works great)
Paper towels
Spray fixative


Using photo as guide, lightly trace your designs onto the frame.

Place a tape nozzle onto the bottle of glue. (see our techniques how-to at favecrafts.com)

(It is suggested that you practice this next step on waxed paper first.) Draw with glue along the pencil lines. Let dry completely.

Spray paint the frame. Let paint dry.

To apply the chalk to the prepared (sprayed) surface, rub the hard bristle brush over the chalk. Then immediately brush chalk onto an embossed area. To change colors, carefully tap off excess chalk and wipe brush on dry paper towel before changing colors. Refill brush with next color and repeat until entire design is colored with the chalk.

Spray frame with fixative to protect/preserve the chalk coloring.

Heidi’s Designer Tip: Instead of flat white spray paint, acrylic paints can be used for a similar look. Just brush on two even coats of paint letting dry completely between coats and dry completely before applying chalk colors.
