I wanted to do a craft foam challenge on one of the on-line stamping groups I'm in and I came up with this faux raku pendant.

Heated tan craft foam on both sides with heat tool. Inked stamp (Sunday International) with dark brown Colorbox fluid chalk ink and pressed into softened foam. Blotted out some of the brown ink while still wet. Allow ink to dry. Squeeze drops of aqua and citrus Ranger alcohol inks randomly on piece. Blot some of the ink so it's not too dark. When dry, squeeze on a little Judikins diamond glaze and spread with finger. You just want to coat the piece to give it a shine. Allow to dry. Trip piece to fit it a 1 1/2 in. Ranger memory frame. String a necklace.

Craft foam, it's not just for kids anymore.
