Tips of Use:
1.Put on a decent amount of paste on and move quickly, minimise number of times paste is spread around.
2. light and even strokes (as if spreading butter) so it is not forced under the stencil.
3.Don't spread too thickly. Remove as much excess as possible without too much working of it.
4. I am not claiming to be an empert but found it easier NOT to use tape as most seemed to the first one I watched just held it down firmly and I found this worked best, otherwise found it tended to smudge a little no matter how hard i tried as I removed it.
On my desk you can see the stencil, embossing paste, spatula, a necessary tool, and items done last night – if anyone wants to know how to do it check out this You tube video – or this one - or you may want to look for some others, there are some good ones.
PS. Note to self - if buying this scrummy paste on eBay again, make sure they pack it well!! This one was squashed badly on the bottom, (minimal packaging and plastic flexible jars dont mix!) and paste popped out and and oozing from top - sealed pinched corners with nail polish. :D
PPS my kind seller refunded me although I was not looking for it just wanted her to be aware of need for re-inforcing.
