    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Frieda asked: "I am collecting Nestabilities. What is the best way to store these?
    A: I think most people store them on magnetic sheets. Some use binders, some VHS or DVD cases to store the Nestabilities in.

    I have cabinets that I store my stamping supplies in. I lined the inside of those cabinets with magnetic vent covers ( you can purchase them at Home Depot or Lowes). All my Nestabilities hang on the doors for easy access.

    We have a great thread talking about Nestabilities storage here.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Lynne has a suggestion for the Metal Flower tutorial: "Soda pop cans are a great idea! I can use the silver side, then airbrush it to whatever color I want with Copics. You could also color it with alcohol inks. Then it should work the same as the video when you sand off the high spots to get the contrast!"
