    Default clever b****r

    That's brilliant and I already have a glue gun! You can apply finishes to glue with either that sticky foil stuff, breathe hard on the surface to just dampen and rub on the foil,or there are some waxes recommended in a book on altered surfaces. I'll check it out tonight and post the name. All excited now, can't wait to get home tonight and have a play, if I can find the glue gun!

    Far be it from me to suggest that's a little tacky.

    I hope so as otherwise the foil wouldn't stick!

    On a serious note hot glue can result in some fantastic effects....

    Wow, those bangles rock!
    I'm not a big fan of costume jewellery but might have to make an exception and buy one if those.

    Adiamore, since your first post - where you actually contributed something useful (and then marred it by posting commercial spam) - you've posted nothing but this kind of drivel. Now, I'm aware that English isn't your first language - despite claiming a location in California, you're actually in India - so I'm going to ask nicely: If you are intending to contribute usefully to this forum, please do so - by all means ask questions, make useful observations - whatever. If you are only attempting to work around your spam being blocked, I would recommend against it.

    Lampworking is something I want to try , have you considered the hothead torch from warm glass? It's only £34.95 and uses a gas cannister available in diy stores. I know a couple of people who use them. I do fused glass but it's only a matter of time before I get one of these torches.
