    Default Questions

    Okay, so I decided to try some hybrid stuff this week, specifically a card. I'm happy with it so far, but there are a few things in the instructions that I don't quite understand (mostly because I lack paper experience). She has good directions, but unfortunately expects me to have some basic knowledge too.

    First, what is silicone glue? and what makes it special. She recomends either foam tape or silicone glue for a portion of this project and I'm not really sure what everything is. Foam tape is just the thick double sided tape, right? If feel dumb.

    Second. I'm supposed to "shape" the pieces, but I don't know what I'm shaping. She mentions using a spoon and shaping the pieces on the back of it. Is this just to give it a more 3-D effect?

    Well, I do paper all the time and you have me stumped? I would guess silicone glue is glue that is raised. Like glue that does not dry flat??? I have tried diamond glaze before but not sure if it is the same thing. (I will try to find the page) You are right on the foam tape thing runs about $4.00 at walmart and as for the shaping I would need more directions as for what pieces you are talking about

    The shaping is for a bunny that has been divided up into a bunch of different overlapping pieces. There are about 30 pieces that go together to make him up. I "think" they are supposed to be curved to make them pop out more, but not sure.

    I found the glue online and it does mention using it for 3-D effects. http://www.michaels.com/art/online/d...ductNum=gc0274 I'm thinking the glue will be easier than cutting foam really small. Some of these pieces are teeny.

    Maybe shaping is her way of saying to use the back of the spoon to get the shape for the bunny right...maybe?? Sounds like paper piecing kind of.

    Silicone glue?? No idea! But good questions, glad to be able to learn right along with you.

    I'm happy to hear you are working on a paper project, but wow, that has me stumped too! I've never used foam tape or silicon glue??! Hmmm!!!

    I'm not sure on the silicone glue, but foam tape is very thick. It is used to get your stuff to be higher than some, to give a 3d effect. Think pop dots!

    Oh, it is from 3scapateers, so it is not free. Here is the link: http://shop.3scrapateers.com/shopexd.asp?id=6529

    It doesn't show the bunny well in the picture, but it has about 30 seperate pieces.

    I thought silicone glue was used on certain surfaces that are hard to bond to. I've used it on glass before but it didn't seem 3-D.

    I can't wait to see your finished product!
