    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Mkamm asks: "Any suggestions on how to glue down those fiilgree intricate die cut designs?"
    A: There are a few ways you can go about it:
    --line the back side of the cardstock with double sided adhesive before die cutting
    --apply a dry adhesive to the die cut after cutting (the product I have is called Artist-Tac)
    --use a matte-drying glue - I actually have Elmer's all-purpose glue in a needle tip bottle, which is almost invisible when dry - it works great and gives you a little wiggle time for placement before it dries.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Sabrina shares her discoveries from the Gel Printing Shrink Plastic tutorial: "I didn't have pre-textured shrink plastic, but sanded one side of it and had no problems. My main discovery was that the clear plastic turned out much prettier than the translucent."
