Tombow USA and Clearsnap BLOG HOP!
WELCOME to the Tombow USA and Clearsnap Blog Hop!
this hop we got together products that were made for each other: Tombow Adhesives and Clearsnap Foils! I bet you
want to join in the Foil trend, so in this hop we will show easy, affordable and
fun ways to do it, so stick with us for the next two days!
USA Blog (on Friday) and Clearsnap Blog
(on Saturday) to start!
Start out with a Walnut Hollow Keepsake Box and stain it with Design Master Colortool Glossy Wood Tone 575 spray paint in a well ventilated area. I applied several light coats to get the most even coverage.
Once dry, decide on the placement of your design, then apply Stencil Stick Spray to the back of your Clearsnap Colorbox® Bloom Art Screen and place on the lid of the box.
Squeeze out a half dollar size dollop of Tombow USA MONO Multi Liquid Glue on to a palette. I use old mail order catalogs for my palettes because they are free! Apply Glue with a Clearsnap Colorbox® Art Dauber making sure to pounce straight up and down over the Clearsnap Colorbox® Bloom Art Screen, so the glue does not seep underneath. Carefully lift up the Art Screen and remove any excess Glue with warm water.
Allow the Tombow USA MONO Multi Liquid Glue to set-up (or dry) slightly. I live in Florida where there is ALOT of humidity, so my tip would be to create a second Art Screen / Glue image on a scrap piece of paper to use as a drying guide and see what works best for you. After about 10 minutes, the Glue was clear, but still tacky.
Place the Clearsnap Designer Foil Plum Crazy silver side down and rub gently with your fingers. Do not rub hard or burnish as these Foils have a very easy release. Just peel back the plastic release sheet and you have a Foiled design! It is that simple! The Foils are also very forgiving, so if you end up with a “bald spot” just press another section of Foil into the Glue until your entire design is deliciously Plum Crazy!
Paint the inside of the box with Americana paint by DecoArt in Lavender. Apply thin layer of Tombow USA MONO Multi Liquid Glue with Clearsnap Colorbox® Art Dauber around the edge of the box bottom and box lid. Wait for Glue to turn clear and apply Clearsnap Designer Foil Plum Crazy to give your box a special POP of color and shine!
