View Full Version : Ever see a coloring/glitter technique that uses dryer sheets?

My friend here at work (actually not really a stamper--just has one set to make Christmas cards) said she knows of this weird technique I have never heard of..... Color the images REALLY DARK, then glue in some places (like on the patterns?), then overlay a dryer sheet and that soaks into the glue--pour glitter on top.

I guess the dryer sheet acts kind of like vellum paper allowing you to see through it, but also add the glitter? I don't get it. Anyone ever heard of this or seen it??

Sounds interesting, would love to see how it's done. I dont have any glitter so I can't try it.

Ahhhhh interesting....thanks!!

I think my friend didn't use the full-coverage sticky thing, I think she spot-glues certain sections, then lay down the dryer sheet, then the glue only soaks through certain places.....so only some highlighted spots get glittered.

Cool either way!!
