This is from page 46 of Paper Transformed and it's called "Cosmos Paper." It's very thick and shiny, hard to capture in pictures. Pretty, but it requires a lot of time with a heat gun.
Step 1: Coat illustration board or very thick cardstock with pigment. I used chalk pigment inks.
Step 2: Cover this with Perfect Medium or Versamark.
Step 3: Sprinkle on some clear UTEE and begin heating from a distance. As the powder melts, sprinkle on more UTEE. I did this about 3-4 times, until I had a very glassy, smooth surface.
Step 4: Let this cool, then cover again with Perfect Medium. Apply Perfect Pearls. I found that more was better with this technique.
Step 5: Sprinkle with more UTEE. There won't be anything to hold it to the surface, so start from a distance and move in as it starts to melt. Add more, and it will "drop through" the Perfect Pearls to form a sort of webby look.
