Technique Tuesday- Paste & Peel
Chalk Couture transfers come in 5 sizes (5x7" to 18x24") with 38 colours of paste and 23 colours of inks. That means there is a whole lot of potential for your projects. Whether you are new to chalking or just getting fancy with your designs "Paste & Peel" is a technique every chalker needs.
Paste & peel is about as simple as it sounds... paste a little & peel the transfer up. But why? As we know the chalks dry quickly, so when you are tackling an extra large transfer, multiple colours or you are new and learning, occasionally you need a little more time. Paste and peel will buy you that time! Of course we are making our sure paste is the right consistency first ;) .
There are two ways to paste and peel--
1. Paste your section & peel up only that part of the transfer allowing the paste to dry. This is a great technique if you have parts that need to stay lined up (like fonts).
2. Paste & peel the whole transfer up, dry and then place the transfer back on- lining it up carefully.
Both ways achieve the same result.
