    Beate Johns answers your technique questions
    Q: Alice asked: "Do you have any tutorials on Intaglio?"
    A: Before reading your question, I hadn't heard of that technique. I searched the web and found
    this definition and this website. If you scroll down an bit, you will find instructions for recreating this technique with Polyshrink.

    I imagine you could do the same type thing by heating foam sheets and pressing a stamp into it. Or check out our tutorial on Faux Metal for another similar look.

    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Teresa has a suggestion for the Beaded Pen tutorial: "I made these pens for my registration table at my wedding. I bought two colors of beads and mixed them to get the color I wanted. When I was done I coated the beads and the ends with clear nail polish. I have had them for 9 months now and have not lost any beads."
