    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Jane asks: "What is your favorite double-sided adhesive for intricate dies?"
    A: Lately I've been using Bearly Art glue with the needle tip on the bottle - it adheres in 5 seconds and dries matte, so I can dot the glue around, place the die cut lightly, and then press it in place. I also really like Artist-Tac adhesive sheets - these are sheets of dry adhesive dots with a protective liner. You peel the liner back and lay your die cut onto the adhesive, then replace the liner and burnish the die cut well with a bone folder to transfer the adhesive to the back. You can stick your die cut down, and any excess adhesive around the edges just rubs away.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Andrea shares a tip for the Wet Paper Watercolor tutorial: "Another tip for inking up stamps with multiple colors from ink pads is to use finger daubers to ink the stamp. Just add ink to the dauber, & then ink up the stamp. Works great! Outline images will also work well, just for a different look."
