Well in keeping with my altered slide mailer theme here are 7 microscope slides I decorated in various ways to put into my altered slide mailers. In each case I have used a single slide backed with thin card cut to size, trapping various inclusions between the card and the slide. All have been sealed with metallic self-adhesive foil in Gold, Copper and Silver effects. The pictures are large to show details but the slides are only 3in x 1in in size.
This one used a background cut from a glossy mag and included some blue/green Stewart Gill glitterati fibres. Sealed with copper foil tape and scratched carefully with a piercing tool to provide a hatching pattern on the foil.
This one had numerous purple and gold fabric and fibres with some sheer material and woven braid. It's important to keep the thickness of these to a minimum otherwise you will have difficulty in sealing on the card back......which in this case was gold. Again gold foil tape was used and 'pricked' with a piercing tool for the texture.
This time with a calligraphy stamped background card and another choice of material inclusions. Again sealed with gold foil tape.
Finally, this one had a layer of two alcohol inked acetate sheets spliced together with a little stamping with stazon on the pink part. The foil was silver this time.
