It wasn't until later, after taking a class off of Tim Holtz himself, that I discovered that Glossy Accents also makes a wonderful adhesive. It is uber-strong and works on heavier elements like plastics and metals. It works great as a glue on paper as well! And with it's precision tip, you can also write rather easily with it. Glossy Accents are definitely a must-have for your scrappy tool box!
Looking to get some Glossy Accents? Here's a couple of tips:
- If the tip gets clogged, take a very fine gauged stick pin and slowly stick it in the tip, making sure not to force it.
- If you use Glossy Accents as a glue and need it to set quick, here's a tip to quick set the item. For example, say you glued a paper flower onto a tag at a crop and needed to go home....It's not dry yet? As long as you are not using the Glossy Accents as an embellishment, but as a glue, you can sit on the project for a minute or so..(yes, I said sit). The heat from your body will quick set the project enabling you to move it or pack it up. Cool tip huh? (This tip is from a Tim Holtz class..)
