Colourful Thoughts Ranges
Who can resist the charm of gilding? Light reflects off these delicate surfaces to lift any project. A tiniest amount of flake can transform a humble peel off, or lift an image to provide a perfect accent and give a stunning result!
The flakes can be used in any number of ways, from traditional gilding techniques, use as inclusions in papers etc. to layering and application with adhesives, with stencils and templates. Try sprinkling onto Angelina, overprinting - the list goes on!
We have several video shorts on YouTube showing gilding techniques. Search for 'craftynotions' to see all available options.
Gleam is a brand new gilding wax. Apply with either a soft cloth or fingertip onto raised surfaces such as dimensional paste, embossed images, polymer clay etc. for that extra added Gleam! Buff to provide a delicate lustre.
Also suitable for contemporary textile applications.

These are the juiciest, richest embossing enamels that you will find. These are not ordinary 'ultra thick' enamels, our Colourful Thoughts Jewel Enamels are especially formulated to deliver the thickest, richest results.
Colours are dual and jewel toned to match colours within the Luscious range of Creative Colour Sprays. They also harmonise beautifully with the thicker Creative Colour Spraypaque paints. Ideal for all thick, multicoloured thermographic powder techniques. Not only can you see the difference, you can feel the difference.

A selection of stunning products which achieve amazing finishes
Detail dots; extra fine nozzle will deliver fine lines and dots. A brilliant design enhancer. Dry dots and lines can be dusted lightly with Colourful Thoughts Mica Powders; this simply explodes the design and colour possibilities.
Dots can be made on a silicone sheet and allowed to dry. They can then be move and placed in a specific motif attaching with glue. This is a useful technique as it allows the dot sizes to be graded if required.
Heat resistant Dot Jewels can be added to Jewel Enamels, Angelina, and with hot glue and many textile hot layering techniques.
These are micas with stunning colours and gleam and have a binder included. This gives them the ability to be used as paints and to be added to other mediums to offer more gleam or an accent note of colour. The Mica Powder Paints are meant for non-washable applications - they are gorgeous for sketchbook work as well as creative multi-media and creative textile applications.
Craftynotions Craft Glue
An excellent all-round glue which dries quickly. Drying clear, it gives a good strong bond. Suitable for gluing different surfaces together, eg paper to plastic, etc.
Although it is a liquid glue, unlike PVA, it is not a wet glue. Its dry nature makes it perfect for gilding techniques.

Craftynotions Double Sided Adhesive Sheet (4xA4)
Craftynotions' double sided adhesive sheet is ideal for use with Gilding Flake, being very thin, it gives a minimal 'lift' - the added height it gives the surface of your work. It has a good level of adhesion suitable for most tasks, but not as much as ultra-high adhesive sheets, which tend to be too sticky for use with Gilding Flake.
