What is so great about the Aleene's Original Tacky glue is that is has really good body to hold the foil while allowing you to push and prod and nudge and shape the foil.

Instructions:

  1. Cover work surface. Glue cardboard cutouts and wood letters to the frame with Aleene’s® Original Tacky Glue®. Let dry.
  2. Cut a piece of foil larger than frame on all sides. Lightly crumple foil to create a crinkled look. Note: do not crumple foil into a ball, as it will tear when flattened. Uncrumple foil and smooth out with a rolling pin, leaving wrinkles.
  3. Squeeze a puddle of Original Tacky Glue® onto paper plate. Use paintbrush to brush a generous amount of glue onto frame.
  4. Immediately wrap crinkled foil around frame, pressing foil down and working fingers over cutouts and letters so foil forms around these shapes. Continue to rub for the foil to take on the impression of whatever is glued underneath and get a really intriguing "crackled" metal finish.   Make sure all edges are glued down. Let dry. Note: if the foil tears while wrapping around the bracelet, crumple and flatten a small scrap of foil and glue in place to cover the tear.
  5. To add color use paint or inks, applying to the foil surface.
  6. Spray with Aleene’s® Spray Acrylic Sealer™ and let dry.
