On this auspicious festival of lights,
May the glow of joy,
Prosperity and happiness
Illuminate you life and and your home.
Wishing you all a very Happy Diwali

Today I am going to share with you all more about SOSPESO TRANSPARANTE, In this post I am going to talk about SOSPESO PAPER VEIL. In my last post I have talked about the BASICS OF SOSPESO PRINTED FILMS , If you are a beginner and would like to try Sospeso for the first time then you can read all about basics here.

Sospeso paper veil is printed images on air light weight paper (special papers). You need to paste these veils on special transparent (plastic) sheets first before you make your gorgeous flowers.

Working with Sospeso plastic films is easy, where you just have to fussy cut the images- heat - and emboss to make your flowers. Its absolutely easy and perfect for beginners.

Coming over to Veils, its little tricky and time taking process, but the time involved is absolutely worth it. Sospeso paper veils are economic as compared to plastic sheets and are perfect for big projects or large quantity of flowers. 

Material Required - 
1- Sospeso paper veil
2- Glue- special sospeso transparente glue 
3- Special sospeso plastic films 
4- Embossing pad and tools 
5- Candle 
6- container and water 

In the above picture you can see I have used Hibiscus paper veil. You can either paste the entire veil on the the special plastic film or you can roughly cut each pattern from veil and paste them individually on the plastic films.
I have tried both the ways .... 

In order to paste these veils on plastic films you will be needing special sospeso transparente glue. Mix equal amount of water and glue in a container and paste the veils with a help of brush.
Since the plastic veil is so thin you got be extra cautious while pasting 

On which side to apply Glue ????
In the picture you can see I have tried both the ways of pasting the veils on plastic film. Top most picture I have pasted the entire veil on plastic films, but somehow there are some wrinkle on the sheets.
Then I tried the long way, I roughly cut the designs and pasted each one of them on the plastic films.

If you noticed, I have pasted veil design pattern facing up while roughly cut images are pasted upside down. Both ways create gorgeous results.

Veils pasted design facing downwards creates Porcelain effect because its glossy and  designs facing upwards where veil back is pasted to the film creates Matte effect.

The cutouts on the left hand side are the matte ones where the plastic is beneath and cutouts on the right hand side are the one procelain where the plastic film is above the design.
I have fussy cut both the sets. It somehow takes lot of time for procelain effect as you need to double cut the flowers one roughly for pasting and secondly final cutting right from the edge.

Once we have all our cutouts ready, Its time for embossing and shaping the flowers. Now the process is similar to that of Printed films, you can check the video how I have embossed the flowers 

While embossing the veils you must take care while at the time of heating, only that area is to be heated where the plastic films is. Don't heat the paper veils else they will catch fire.

Finally with all the time and effort the gorgeous flowers are ready. You can easily spot the difference between the two sets of matte and procelain.

It's time to assemble these beauties :)

 Since the Matte effect gives the normal look to flowers that of simple paper flowers, I have decided to add some distress dry glitter with sospeso glue.
I have added these flowers to this bird cage candle stand. It just perfectly enhances the beauty and looks perfect against the black color.

Happy diwali :)
Haave added candle to it and its just looking perfect.

Further have tried my hands on some basic jewellery pieces like a ring and neck piece. 

The flower used in the jewellery and frame is procelain effect one's,

I hope I am able to inspire you all, Do try your hands on this gorgeous art of SOSPESO.
