Default Faux metal help needed!

Hi All, Hope everyone's day is off to a great start! I am hoping someone can direct me to the posts or products about a hardware store supply used as faux metal when embossed with an embossing folder, not embossing powder. I am thinking it is a roll of tape but can't find it in the forums! It's been discussed recently but I must not be using the correct search terms. Any help would be appreciated...thanks!

Could you have seen reference to aluminum tape maybe? You can stick that to cardstock and emboss in a folder. It’s adhesive on one side so you don’t have to think about how you’re going to stick it down. Kitchen foil is a decent choice too and you’re not restricted on width - a decent quality glue stick or something like Glossy Accents makes a reasonable job of sticking it to cardstock before you emboss.

HTH!

Thank you so much, Joanne! Aluminum tape is exactly what I meant! I was thinking it was a plumbing supply and nothing was coming up in my search, now I know why! I'm heading to Lowe's to shop for a Father's Day gift so will look for it there. I really appreciate your help. Thank you!!

Hi there-I actually use copper, yes real copper flashing. It's very light weight, it embosses gorgeous! Comes in a roll. Got it at the hardware store. Good luck.

The aluminium tape should be easy to locate in a car spares shop/aisle. It's often used for small repairs to Exhausts. Hth.

I LOVE Aluminum tape if you all need some help enabling, lol. My DH had to borrow my roll one time to fix the car and I had a sad face like don't use it all, lol. Really, why do our guys keep stealing our things from our room? I mean we work so hard going to hardware and auto stores to find these treasures. They really should get their own.

I’ve actually found aluminium tape in my local £1 shop (equivalent of your dollar stores) so it’s a very economical craft supply!

Thanks for the great tip! Much easier to run into a dollar store than the big box hardware stores!

Lowe's and Home Depot are 2 of my favorite craft stores!

Embossing mat = 1/8" plumber's gasket

Texture medium = spackling compound

Texture stencil = drywall tape

Stamp scrubber = paint edger

Texture stencil = window screen

Removable adhesive = painter's tape

Color inspiration = paint chips

Ribbon organizer = gutter

Distress look = sandpaper

Watercolor palette = ceramic tile

Etc.

The other advantage of buying "hardware" items over "craft" items is that you usually get more of the product for fewer of your dollars, since they aren't "specialty" items as they become when re-packaged and re-branded for the craft industry. They are often higher quality, as well. Harbor Freight is another great "hardware" resource for storage and tools...

So many great ideas! I've been using a paint edge as a stamp scrub forever, but hadn't thought of using a ceramic tile for watercolors! Thanks for sharing your tips!

And while we're at HD, PLEASE what is the plumber item I see people recommending for metal dies organization, magnetic something? Use it to keep small dies from getting lost/misplaced & better than tape to keep die sets together? Thanks

Another hardware store item that helps dies from getting buried when working with them is a magnetic parts tray. Here’s one that Home Depot and Amazon both sell that I use:
Amazon.com: TEKTON 1902 Round Magnetic Parts Tray: Home Improvement

And yellow “Frog Tape” is the least sticky painters tape of all the colors, good for making borders if watercoloring/inking.

If you have a chop saw or other way to cut them, white PVC pipe can be cut into different heights, adhered to each other and made into great holders, either vertical or horizontal.

I'm sure you found some stuff posted (I haven't clicked any links) but what you're referring to is probably REAL duct tape. The stuff they call duct tape is actually not meant to be used on ducts! I had to buy a roll of it - wasn't cheap! Mine has printing all over it but can be removed with alcohol I think.
I got a silver and gold adhesive tape at Michaels a couple years ago or so on clearance. It was with the Christmas stuff. I think it was from Scotch but not positive.

Sheet metal (you can get a large piece for like $5) is good for a magnetic surface. You can use it under a cutting mat with strong magnets to hold stuff in place while you're scrapping. I've also attached a small piece inside a cabinet door on my desk for a magnetic board.


Magnetic vent covers is what people use for die storage. I have found Home Depot to be the best buy. You get (3) 8x15" sheets for about $5. I cut mine up to different sizes so I can stretch it further.


I've used the stiff plastic packaging from products as paint palettes.

I have a milwaukee heat gun, got it at the hardware store and have had it over 17 years! It was supposed to be used for paint removal, loosen floor tiles, etc.

I think that is the magnetic vent covers? You can get those in the heating/cooling department. You can get them at WalMart too. Sometimes Dollar Tree has them. You girls that are lucky to have 99 cents store. You have a treasure trove in their hardware department, especially if you are doing acrylic pours. Lots of YouTube videos for 99 cent store hardware for our art. A little note- I am jealous, so very, very jealous of those who shop at 99 cent stores. It is torture to watch those videos, lol.

On to this flashing thing that was recommended. I told my DH we need to get to Home Depot so I can get some flashing, lol. I think he's trying to score me a few pieces at his construction sites. I have the contractor's trained to give me things now, lol. Before some gasp. It's just the stuff they are going to throw away like scraps. Yes, a lot of my stash comes from construction sites.

sometimes I've been tempted to go up to site where you see lumber sticking out of those long dumpsters and ask. But I am way too chicken. LOL All I can think is they've got some good wood in there!

Oh my gosh don't be chicken. Ask away. They will be glad to get rid of it. They don't have to pay such large waste fees. My DH & I we are slowly remodeling our own home and a lot of it is scraps from construction sites. We have our list and when my DH spots it he asks. A lot of the contractor's are like "We have some things we thought you two would like." We scored a $200 thermostat from our luxury home because the owner didn't like it and wanted a Nest. They told the contractor they didn't want it and he gave it to us instead. I had a friend who did a $20,000 kitchen remodel all on scraps. She paid nothing. She got the marble counters, lighted floors and even appliances.

One time an archaeologist came up to my DH and he said the contractor told him how much I loved dinosaurs and fossils. He gave my DH a bunch of fossils for me. They considered them trash. I consider them one of my most prized possessions.

Some things like cooper the contractor's take back for money scraps. Some cities pay the contractor's for recycling items. Even then the contractor's way in if it is worth their time and what they will make to do that. My DH needed some cooper wiring a few weeks ago. He asked the contractor if he could purchase the scraps and the contractor was like "Take it!"

What we don't use we recycle back too. I recently gave away a lot of things. We put out a pedestal sink and this lady saw it and started screaming she was so excited, lol.

Sometimes they will pay you take things too. It is cheaper than paying the waste fees. We had a friend come over and remove a lot of things for us. We paid him $30. He was going through a tough time. We knew how much it was going to be worth when he scrapped it. He was so excited when he found out he got $500 for it. He's still thanking us, and we are still thanking him for getting rid of it, lol.

Moral of the story, just ask. Trust me construction family is the best. We love to give as much as we love to build.

Just wanted to say that DeeAnn is telling the absolute truth! My husband has been in construction his entire life and every word of what DeeAnn says is true. His dad's house was largely "leftovers" from various jobs, but you'd NEVER know it - it was a little jewel box! Another thing to consider: if you don't ask, the answer is automatically "no" (true in every scenario in life, not just this one)...

The Geordies (natives of Newcastle, UK) have a phrase for that which Iíve always loved - shy bairns get nowt (bairns being the dialect word for babies or children, nowt being nothing). Obviously sounds best with the right accent

LOL I knew what bairns was.

Speaking of Geordies and dialect. I thought Sarah Millican was Scottish because of her accent. Which I guess is a common mistake, particularly for Americans. LOL Scottish is one of my favorite accents. The other is Irish. LOL

Love, love digging around hardware stores, especially the little (non-chain) ones in smaller cities or towns. You can find so many things that are useful for art projects and just organizing your stash. My fave is Harbor Freight..my husband knows that he has to take me with him when he goes. I use the vent covers for all my dies, cut the sheets down and insert them in plastic cases ( buy mine on line at; tapeonline.com item #6656) about $1.25 each.

I just put these guys into my wishlist bc Lydia just did cards with the silver...

Interestingly I found this 66 yds is the same price as the 33 she had on the copper tape. Different brand...

LOVIMAG Copper Foil Tape (1inch X 66 FT) with Conductive Adhesive for Guitar & EMI Shielding, Slug Repellent, Crafts, Electrical Repairs, Grounding: Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific


I think they are the same? Someone check me who knows these tapes....


This is the aluminum
