Gilding flakes and stamping

Postby Carolyn » Sun Sep 23, 2012 9:10 pm

Just reading a trade mag, and it says combine gilding flakes with stamps and craft adhesive to produce stunning results. Anyone tried this? I have no idea what they mean

I don't know either .... I have seen them do a bit of gilding on C&C but haven't tried it myself.

I have done it a few years ago in a class.
We stamped with Stazon onto sticky backed acetate ( stamping on the non sticky side), removed the backing, dunked into a tub of flakes & brushed the excess off in the tub with a largle holed sponge. Rubbed it well to buff.
You can also apply a special adhesive with a sponge to a stamp, stamp with it & dunk in the tub & buff, or use versamark with stamp n bond ( or heat n bond, I forget which is the right name) powder ( like a embossing powder, but goes sticky when you heat it), then dunk n rub. I think we waited till the powder was cool.
It does look nice when it is done. I have only done it the once though, & must be about 5 years ago, so my memory is a little sketchy.

I saw this demonstrated at the weekend. She stamped with some sort of sticky stuff and then cleaned her stamp straight away. She dipped the image into a box containing the flakes then rubbed it off with her finger. Then she used a sponge sort of thing to polish it up. It looked lovely when finished.

Two ways to do this

1. Glue - use a two way glue ie it dries sticky. Was referred to as sailor glue at one point but also blue glue that dries clear usually in pen form but you can also get bottles of similar glue which you could make a temporary ink pad out of. Put on page either directly or ont a stamp and then stamp and clean immediately, sprinkle flakes over and use a tissue or soft cloth to rub over where glue is till everywhere flakes are covering the glue. You can leave slightly textured or burnish more

2. Use a Heat and Bond type powder which is basically a powdered glue that melts in heat and dries sticky (SU of course do one :-) as also they do a pen of the above glue) stamp in versamark or other sticky ink, sprinkle with powder just like embossing powder, heat and let cool then apply flakes and burnish as previously. You can also buy sheets of coloured foils to do this with (called foiling) rather than jst metallic colours and what you do then is the same process but rather than sprinkle flakes lay the foil sheet over rub over the top and peel excess away, burnish as previously
