Yesterday I was lucky enough to meet up with the NH CZT group that actually met in Hull MA.  We had a lovely six hours with a beautiful lunch and the estuary as a back drop.  The day was full of information. We discussed polymer clay techniques (Bette Abu) and stamping techniques (Melissa Hoopes).  At show and tell Sadelle Wiltshire shared a technique for tangling on aluminum foil.

On the dull side of the foil glob on tacky glue and let dry overnight or until hardened.  When ready mount the glue side down with more glue (I used a glue stick) onto a card stock.  Then use a blunt tip, old pen, bone folder or ideally an embossing stylus, they come in many sizes, to tangle on the aluminum.

This is my first and it wont be my last.  I hope you can appreciate this as a copy. The large globby things are glue on the oposite side, they have actually become a negative on the copier but in real life they are raised.

  1. I love this. I am going to try it. thank you for posting how it is done. I wonder if it can be stained to bring out the relief of the tangles.
