Actually, while researching graniteware enamelware I found out that there are actually 3 different types all of which are defined by the way the colors are added to the base coat of enamel.
Mottled Ware ~ (usually grey)
Agateware Enamel -
Speckledware or Pepperedware Enamel ~
Anyway... here you go ~
2013 Technique Calendar
Faux Speckled Graniteware Enamel
Cardstock or Chipboard
Embossing Ink (clear)
Embossing Powder - Red, Blue, Green, etc.
White Embossing Powder - Coarse Grain works best - Ex. Ranger's Weathered White Antiquities EP
1. Apply a generous amount of embossing ink to your cardstock/chipboard.
2. Sprinkle on the colored embossing powder of your choice. Since the most common speckled graniteware is blue that's what I'm using for this demonstration.
3. Heat the embossing powder to melt. You may need to sprinkle on a bit more ep after your initial coat to be sure you have a nice thick layer of color laid down.
4. Immediately after you melt the colored ep, sprinkle a bit of the white embossing powder directly onto the molten powder. The white ep should melt instantly but if not a quick shot with the heat tool will do the trick.
And here you go.....
Looks just like the original huh?
Well, since I'm using it for February's calendar page I went with red speckled graniteware enamel....
