Brutus Monroe Sticky Glue Pad
Technique: Sticky Glue Pad + Glitter
It's so easy to make your impressions shimmer! Simply stamp your image using the Sticky Glue Pad and sprinkle the impression with fine glitter. Gently press the glitter with your finger to get the best coverage, give it a few seconds to dry and tap off excess. Now all of your stamps can become glittery masterpieces!
Technique: Sticky Glue Pad + Pastels/Chalks
For a colorful matte effect, pair the Sticky Glue Pad with pastels or chalks. Ink your stamp with the glue pad, stamp your image and apply the pastels with a sponge or your finger. The powdered pigment adheres to the glue for a beautiful, soft image. For the same effect, but with added shimmer, try it with Perfect Pearls!
Technique: Sticky Glue Pad + Foil
The Sticky Glue Pad works with foils! How cool is that? Here I applied the glue pad using a stencil, placed a sheet of foil on top and ran it through my laminator. I peeled the foil sheet and revealed the metallic impression! Then I repositioned the stencil, added a second layer of glue and foil and ran through the laminator again for even more dimension and shine. Imagine the foiling possibilities!
We love trying out new products for you and teaching you all of the new techniques we discover. Hope this quick tutorial inspires you to add the Sticky Glue Pad to your stash and don't forget to check out all of the other Brutus Monroe products Christopher Alan shows off in the above video!
