This is a quick primer to explain how to use Metallic
a Background or Border
Cut double-sided tape such as terrifically tacky tape or
red-liner tape into the shape and size you want. Remove the
backing from one side. Press exposed tape to the area in which
you want to create a background. Peel off the second backing.
Press metallic leaf flakes onto the exposed tape and brush off
with a stiff bristled brush. Save the excess for use on another
a Stamped Image in Metallic Leaf
image using pigment or embossing ink. Sprinkle with Blockheads
Heat Activated Glue Powder over the image as you would embossing
powder and pour off the excess. Heat with an embossing heat
gun until it is clear instead of a white powder. While still
hot and sticky, press your foil leaf flakes onto the image.
Let cool for 1 minute and brush away the excess foil leaf with
a stiff bristled brush. Viola! Your image is richly embossed
in bright metallic beauty!
