  • Foil

    Ive just tried to use that rub on foil with glue dots.
    First of all do I really have to rub down on the area I want foiled, ie with my nail edge and secondly, how the b'jesus do I just foil a tiny area?Big areas are ok-ish but tiny areas are impossible.

    Hmmm, I havnt tried the rub-on foil, but would a cocktail stick be any good for rubbing on in tiny areas?

      I've used it in the past applying glue with a glue pen (repositionable, stays tacky for a while, can't think of the make) I just rubbed with the round end of a biro and it "took" just where the glue was and nowhere else.

        I usually just used a cloth over my finger and rub over (or if I'm completely honest I use my sleeve over my finger). If you're talking about the glue dot magic motifs then you can mask off the bits you don't want to foil using the clear plastic backing it comes on...just make sure you use the correct side otherwise it sticks.

          Thanks for the info.
          Coincidently I do use cocktail sticks for my work.
          I like the sound of these pens, tonertex I believe they are called.
