My project today uses one of the cutest Saturated Canary images, "Princess Peanelope". I used my Copic Sketch markers to color it along with a ShinHan Touch Twin Brush marker. But, it also included using the Perfect Tears Tool! I admit I have used "tear tools" before, but this tool by Perfect Paper Crafting was soooo awesome to use!! First, it comes with a water bottle which give you a way to add water to your paper which in turn makes it sooo much easier to tear!
When you first add water to the bottle, you will need to "plunge" the tip a bit to get the water flowing through.
Once you see a spot of water showing up on your paper, it's good to go.
Decide where you want to make your tear... lay your Perfect Tears Tool down and simply run the tip of the bottle down the rulers edge. Now, I ran my down a few times because I REALLY wanted my tear to look more "ragged" to match my distressing on my image. WOW... was I happy with how it came out!!!
It not only tore perfectly, it even raised the edge a bit after it dried and I LOVED that!!! If you simply go down the edge of the tool a few times to dampen your paper, your tear will be much smoother. Again, I really wanted the fibers to show and look ragged so I went down my paper 3-4 times. Here's a close up of how it looks.
LOVE, LOVE the end result!!! I know you will love this tool and with the option adding a bit more water to it for a different look other than just a simple wavy tear, it just adds to the awesomeness of this tool compared to others.
And, of course, there are more than enough options as to which style of tear you want. You MUST give this a try!!! :-)
