Re: [BKARTS] Gold line on bands



one way is to hold your tool over a candle in such a way as to cause carbon
to build up on the end of the tool. ( it will turn black).
After the tool has cooled a bit you can create a template of your design by
transfering` the carbon onto some thin mending tissue. 
Then you can put the foil on the raised band, put your template over the
foil, reheat your tool and hot stamp through the mending tissue.  The
heated tool will go right through the tissue.  Keep a wet towel on hand
just in case. ( I doubt you'll need it.)  Then simply wipe the cabon off
your tool, though you really don't have to.
