Making tissue-foil

Postby gilad_zn » January 15th, 2004, 9:22 pm

Hello everyone!

I've always hated making tissue-foil, mostly because I could never make it without all the "air-bubbles" and creases. A couple of days ago I found out how to do it VERY fast and VERY smooth, with -zero- crumples!

After I spray the foil, I wrap the tissue around a board (my faithful cutting mat!), and then simply put the board on the foil with the tissue-wrapped side facing down.

I it wasn't clear enough, I've put pictures on my site, in the Tips sections

I use a vaguely similar method. I wrap the tissue (or unryu, or whatever) around a cardboard tube. After spraying the foil I can then roll the tissue onto it.
