I have a picture of my granddaughter learning to eat with a spoon. She is eating choc pudding and has it smeared all over and dripping off her face.

I want to do a LO with the look of melted choc or pudding, smeared on the page and dripping.

Does anyone know what type of product(s) I will need to achieve this look?

Thanks in Advance
TIA

How about dimensional fabric paint? It comes in lots of colors so I'm sure there's an appropriate brown. (The texture is similar to Glossy Accents. I know Ranger Ink makes dimensional paints too, but I could only find 'pearl' shades.)
It should give you the drippiness you talked about. The only drawback I can think of is the thicker it is applied the longer it takes to dry.

I've used glossy brown paint for this effect. The Liquid Pearls might work well, too.

Aw cute!

How about using scissors, a die or a cutter to cut paint splotches, or dribbles (I'm sorry, I have no idea whether Cricut makes a cartridge with splatty shapes on) out of brown paper, and then covering them in Glossy Accents to make them look shiny?

You could try adding a punched border in brown paper. Either the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo border punch, or the Fiskars Grass border punch (upside-down) could be used for that effect.

Note: I see the Fiskars Grass punch has been discontinued here, but I saw it at Michaels, so you might want to check it out there.

I did that effect on these chipboard letters just using watery acrylic paints ... tilt the page and let it run as far as you want

You can use a texture paste as a base on the page. Just put it on the paper with a spatel or paint brush, it doesnt need to be perfect. Then you can use a brown coloured paint to mimic the chocolate. Over the paint, you can use brown enbossing powder, the smooth, slick feel and look of the embossing will mimic the chocolate just perfectly. Thats how I would do it....

All great ideas ladies!!!

My trouble is that I don't have any of the products you all suggested, and no big craft stores within 2 hours of my home... except Walmart.

I really think that Liquid Pearls looks like it would work good. But I would have to order it. Our Walmart doesn't carry much in Sbing supplies.

We do have a lss & I called her to see if she had any of the products mentioned, and she did not. She did suggest that I could go to Walmart & get some "Gesso" (thick white texture paint) and mix it with brown Acrylic paint.

Kimmi.....love your Cupcake LO. If I can find some brown acrylic paint at Walmart, I might try your suggestion!

Thanks Again for your help!!!

Yes gesso would work great but you really dont have to mix it cause mixing brown with white will make beige. It's better (speaking from own experience) to paint it after the gesso is dried. I paint it first before embossing for this reason, to create a base coat/colour incase the embossing doesnt take all the way. It wont show as much

Good luck on creating chocolate paper ...

I have no experience with working with these types of products. I do have a heat gun, but no embossing powder, paint, or gesso (or like product).

I would like to place an order from here to get the products I need. Would you be kind enough to link the products you think would work best for what I am needing?

I would just use brown acrylic paint - I've done that and it works just fine. I even got my paint at Walmart

Thanks Amy...I think that would be the cheapest way to go. I looked in your gallery to see if I could find a LO that you used this technique on, but you have a very large gallery!!!

If you have a LO (already in your gallery) where you have used this acrylic paint, would you care to link it here for me to see?

I did a craft project at a crop once where we smeared Liquitex Acrylic Heavy Body white paint (it's like a cream) over chipboard (available at J's). I created little hills and valleys and let it dry for a brief time. We then hit it with glimmer mist. It looked just like frosting when I was done. If I were to do it again, I would probably use Mister Huey's because I believe that mist isn't sparkly.

I did a Halloween layout where I just dripped paint from the top of the page...I squeezed a line of acrylic craft paint (from the dollar store) onto my craft mat and then ran the edge of the paper through it, tilted the paper up and let it run down....
It's pretty easy and you don't need anything special (of course, I would use brown paint for chocolate!)....

I have a paint splatter die that I have used for this and it turned out really cute. If you want I would be more than happy to punch a few and mail them to you just let me know.

I don't have the project uploaded that I have in mind, but the look was very much like the letters on the cupcake layout above.

I used modge podge and gloobed it on so when i tilted it, it dripped down than put red embossing powder on it to make it look like blood and it was a really cool effect you could do it with brown embossing powder too im sure!!
