When it comes to trying out new crafting supplies and techniques, I’m a gal who likes to do her research. I figure that, if I’m going to spend time creating something new, I want to know the supplies I’m working with, and, when considering similar materials, I want to have the background knowledge required to confidently choose the best option for my project. This is where my pal Jenny from Craft Test Dummies steps in. If I ever encounter a material that I’ve never used before, she’s at the very top of my will-definitely-know list. (Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever asked her about a supply that she hasn’t already tried.) Case in point: this fantastic overview of using metal foils, flakes, and leafing.
The video she made on this topic is incredibly helpful and thorough. I didn’t know a single thing about using metal leafing before I watched, but now I’m totally prepared to use it on an upcoming project.
Want to boost your metal materials knowledge? Check out the full overview and video over on Craft Test Dummies!
