Ask Beate
Beate Johns answers your technique questions
Q: Holly asked: "I would like to know the process for using rub ons on vases, coffee mugs, or any other slick surfaces."
A: "First, make sure the surface you want to add rub-ons to is completely clean. Carefully trim around the images you want to use. Remove from carrier sheet, and place over the object. Press down on the backing with your fingers or apply a small bit of tape to the edges so that the image will stay put. Now, rub over the image with the included wooden stick or a bone folder until the image is transferred. To make sure the transfer is complete, gently pull the backing up after rubbing. Check this thread in our forums for more discussion on rub-ons."

Adele has these tips for the Altered Lunch Tin tutorial: "I've been making these for a while and use Sticky Strip to adhere the scrapbook paper to the tin. I also cover the lid with silk flowers and leaves hot glued in place."
