A soft, powdered glue – KK glue. Washable and very durable.
KK glue can be used on any surface that can be ironed – fabric, wood, card and paper.
As with other powdered glues this product has many practical uses such a patching and appliqué however, I like to use it with stencils or sprinkled randomly and decorate it with transfer foils.
Before starting your project, always do a small sample to see just how thinly you need to sprinkle the powder.
To use with a stencil – lightly sprinkle the glue powder evenly – to create a thin, even layer. Carefully remove the stencil without smudging the design.
Cover carefully with baking parchment and iron with a hot iron for 30 seconds. Once cool, remove baking parchment.
Then lay foil, colour side up, onto the glue, cover with baking parchment and iron with a cooler iron – around wool or medium. (If the iron is too hot, the foil will pucker and not release its colour.)
When cool, remove the baking parchment and the foil will have stuck to your design. If you use Jones Tones or Tonertex foils I can guarantee this will be washable. This is great for t shirts.
Please bear in mind that as KK Glue is a powder, you won’t get a very sharp edge to your design when working with stencils, however, the slightly distressed edge gives a softer effect.
Alternatively you can just sprinkle the glue randomly as a finishing touch to your project. Less is more in the case – you don’t need a lot.
Once you have sprinkled, fix with the iron using baking parchment and then foil.
