this is insanely cool.
which is a coincidence because you are ALSO insanely cool.

love it!


Nice!! When you make the glue gun design, and then peeling it from the paper/Teflon sheet, are you coloring it and using it as a stamp? Or do you lay the glue design down on yr surface (fabric, paper, etc.) and then spray/color it that way? I hope my question is clear! I too have been looking for ways to create stencils for my work!


Debbi G.

Great idea! Thanks for sharing. I love my glue gun. I use it for so many different projects. I love making stamps with it. I get the styrofoam from the meat and produce packages and cut them in squares to use as a base for the glue. I Doodle a design on it and have a great stamp that lasts for such a long time. Your books have given me such great ideas and advice such as my glue gun stamps. Now i just have to try out the stencils.Thank you Traci
