Beginners Guide To Gilding Flakes:

Want to add a little elegance to your cards? Give your artwork the Midas touch? Gilding with FlitterGlu is an easy but extremely effective way to achieve this. Here's your beginners guide and masterclass to using gilding flakes. FlitterGlu is a unique stamping and gilding adhesive made by IndigoBlu that makes it easy to gild. Because of its unique formula you can gild onto card, wood, MDF acetate, glass, and metal. It comes in a starter kit with everything you need.



Start With Phat Foam:

Start by cutting a piece of the Phat Foam (Black on one side, white on the other) from the kit to about 1" x 2". Using a small palette knife or coffee stirrer take about 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of FlitterGli and work into the white side of the Phat Foam. 

 

Apply FlitterGlu To Your Rubber Stamp:

This is now your FlitterGlu 'ink' pad. Ink up your stamp with the FlitterGlu in a dabbing motion and stamp onto card quickly. HINT: You don't have to press hard or long when stamping as the FlitterGlu easily 'grabs' the card. Just 'kiss' stamp literally on and off. Wash your stamp straight away in clean, plain water. Use a nail brush or old toothbrush to get into the detail of the stamp. Your stamped image will remain tacky permanently so you don't have to panic if the phone rings.



Sprinkle Your Mega Gilding Flakes:

Sprinkle Mega Gilding Flakes on your stamped image, holding the card over your box of flake to catch the excess. Then place it on the desk and rub over the image with the palm of your hand.



Polish Your image:

To give more detail to your project we are going to use the Scoochy Sponge. Polish your image with this grey Scoochy Sponge from the kit and take a look at your own gorgeous result!

Top Tips: Decant your pot of flake into your A5 Tuff-box so it doesn't escape! If you forget to wash your stamps straight away, stay calm and clean it with Easy Peasy Stamp Cleaner. Use FlitterGlu to edge your cards and gild them for that sumptuous feel.
