Foils, Flakes, Décor Glue Tacky, 3D Glue Paste – Pentart 101 – Episode 12

Pentart Foils, flakes, metal leaf

Foils and Flakes are all used with Décor Glue Tacky and 3D Glue Paste. There are two types of Flakes, colored and metal.

Colored Flakes are plastic based, so they do not contain any metal. Seal the Flakes with a water – based glossy varnish to retain the shine. 

Each pack contains 1 gram of flake. Colored Flakes comes in a variety of colors.

  • Blue- Gold

  • Red

  • Green

  • Pink 

  • Blue

  • Baroque Gold

  • Dark Purple

  • Light Purple

Colored Foils: They create a metallic sheen and are also plastic based, so seal with a water – based glossy varnish. The Foils are a bit smaller than the Décor Foils, but they are very similar; Décor Foils have a plastic backing while Foils are a sheet of foil. Use foils with the same method as using Metal Leaf Sheets.
