Bronzing?

Been on Briar Press and get the basic gist, but any tips, techniques, and or recommendations for what powder to use would be greatly appreciated! KateSee More

Lauren Stedman replied to Kate's discussion Where do you get you coaster stock (besides Katz America), and what thickness do you prefer?
"Thanks for the step-by-step how to. I've had a couple of opportunities to die cut but have been a bit nervous. Basically know how, but your photos gave me a kick in the butt. Aren't C&Ps great presses! Print beautifully,…"

"Yup, C & P 10 x 15. I found the tutorial on here extremely helpful. Thanks so much for the recommendation for where to get a die. I definitely keep hearing good things about them. I know it'll be more expensive (and time-consuming)…"

"I have only done die cutting once and it was a very long time ago... You will need to get a die made.   I was recommended this place: appledie.com There's probably some toturials online.  Do you work on a C and P ?"

Kate replied to Kate's discussion Where do you get you coaster stock (besides Katz America), and what thickness do you prefer?
"Thanks Shayna! I definitely hate the medium weight Katz. It's just so flat, and hard to get a good impression without cracking in my experience. I think I'm going to try die-cutting. Have you done this before? Thanks again!"
