    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Dorothy asks: "I know this is a stamping forum, but I could not find another forum that seemed to fit. Can you suggest a product to use to add snow to some quilted banners? The images are preprinted, so this is to enhance snow on trees, etc. We need something that will work on fabric, that will not crack, and will look good next year!"
    A: I would try a light modeling paste - it's easy to apply with a palette knife, and you can add 'lift' and dimension to it easily. The paste remains flexible after it dries, so there shouldn't be a problem with cracking. Liquitex and Golden are brands I trust.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Tammy has a tip for the Stationery Box tutorial: "If you adhere the stamp pocket upside down"so the bottom is level with the top of the address book and the top opens toward the pen, you can still get the stamps, but they won't fall out when you close the box."
