Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #402 – Celtic Cross
Cotton linter - (see Rycraft Cotton Linter)
1 paper casting* - 
#402 – Celtic Cross (see Basic Paper Casting Instructions)

Acrylic varnish
Acrylic paints (optional): burnt umber, dark brown and metallic gold for burnt casting; pale aqua and silver for white casting; and pale green and metallic gold for spice casting.
Optional:  spices of your choice to color pulp to a light tan color (see bottom photo)

Instructions:

1.  Make paper casting (either white or color it darker using spices).
2.  When paper casting is dry, apply a light coat of varnish to seal the casting from moisture (so it will not swell and lose the design when paint is applied). Optional: Apply a light 2nd coat of varnish and let dry.
3.  For the effects shown below:
     Top photo:  Apply a coat of burnt umber to entire casting and let dry. Use a flame to burn the edges of the casting.  Then apply gold paint to the top edges of the design and let dry. Optional:  Apply dark brown paint to the edges of the casting to enhance the burnt effect.
