I love American Crafts Thickers as a product but these new DIY Thickers are great. I bought some for the kit we used on the National Scrapbooking Day and they are so easy to use. I made a chart to show some of the effects when you use different products on them. Here are a few:
I used mine by inking with an ordinary dye ink pad and the results are fab! The American Crafts Micro Beads are also gorgeous as they are little metallic beads and they just stick to the letters - no problem. To ink them - just leave intact and ink over the top - great! To add some dimension - peel back the top layer and they become sticky - so you can pour over the microbeads, glitter etc., and that adds fabulous dimension to your projects.
Here are my findings of the review:
Cost: They cost the same price as the white Thickers (I have used them before to colour but they don't give the same effect).
Use: As described above, they are very easy to use and they do as they describe - colour or stick! I found that the American Crafts Micro Beads gave better coverage that the ordinary ones I had (but that is just personal choice).
Overall Impression: Clever product that gives you more choices regarding colours when using Thickers. The only downside - and this can be said of all alphabet stickers - there are not enough vowels!!! Manufacturers take note!
Have you used this product or the general Thickers alphabet stickers? Leave a comment to let me know and I will enter your name into the blog candy draw. Thanks for stopping by.
