I really want to try to do this, but I am having a problem trying to find a source. I know you can get a cellophane backed foil that you press on with an iron, and a kind that you rub on. But I'm not sure where to look for this, or what brands people like. I don't want to buy something and then have to buy adhesive to make it stick. Any direction on what brands to look for would help!
Thanks, I will try that. Crazy thing happened, my friend took me to a fantastic store in Vancouver BC, called Urban Source, she carries all sorts of crazy stuff in bulk and guess what she had! Foils, gold, silver, copper, colored, that you could buy in handfulls for next to nothing! And all kinds of different types of papers, and metals. You pick a size of bag, medium size was $6.95 and you fill it with whatever you want from the bulk stuff. I can't wait to get to trying it all out! If you ever get to Vancouver, check it out! She's at 3126 Main St, downtown Vancouver.
I know I've tried using gold leaf with regular glue and it was a huge mistake. Now whenever I use precious or semi-precious foil I use a specific glue from this site and it usually works... thanks for the store address, sounds like a great place.
