for using Micro Marbles
Always work in a box or tray. Spilled Micro Marbles
are nearly impossible to save and they will roll
off a single sheet of paper. Tidy Tray offers
a tray with a funnel built in.
You'll get tighter coverage if you pour the marbles
directly over all parts of your sticky area, rather
than trying to roll them around to cover the surface.
With rough handling, Metallic Marbles can crumble
after being adhered to artwork.
Some double-sided tapes hold Micro Marbles better
If using Micro Marbles with a plastic funnel or
tray, wipe down plastic with an antistatic dryer
sheet to keep marbles from sticking with static
electricity. You can also tear off a small piece
of dryer sheet and drop it into a big if marbles
are clinging to the side of it. Close the bag
and shake until none of the marbles are clinging
If you want to try your hand at making mixtures
of different colored Micro Marbles, start with
small amounts. A 1/4 teaspoon of Micro Marbles
goes a long way. * If you use a Xyron device to
layer card stock, this should be done after working
with Micro arbles. Xyron will leave just enough
glue residue at the edges of card stock to make
working with embossing powders or Micro Marbles
Using heat activated Sticky Powder to cover a
stamped image with Micro Marbles works best with
thick-lined, bold images.
