I wonder, do you have to add a drop of glue or some kind of binder to the water/chalks mixture to keep chalks from dusting? I have many chalks that I don't use and this is such a great idea. thanks!

let me know about the binder. thanks!


You can use microglaze over the top of anything you have chalked to seal it. You can also use chalk enhancer instead of water. It keeps the colors more vibrant like when they are wet. I searched the store here for the enhancer and couldn't find it-- I got mine at my LSS before it closed. You might google it--

I haven't tried this yet I think you use them like water colors. After you color use a water and brush

Oh yes, my zutter that I HAD to have. I had all these great ideas I was going to do with it...and now I can't remember any of them. I don't even know if the thing works, but I got it on a good sb.com sale and it looks pretty on the shelf. ~Judy

Yep, the bind-it-all is what's taking up shelf space and collecting dust. Someday maybe I'll actually use it...or my daughter will inherit it and it can sit on her shelf. I even bought a bunch of extra wire binders for it in various colors. I'm good to go...just no timeā€”or interest, for right now at least. ~Judy

I just used my Zutter last weekend to keep all of my computer websites and passwords (cryptically, of course)organized. Last Christmas our computer went kaput and I was at a loss for websites for several places. Not gunna happen again.

Read the first three pages and have to say we all have our little oddities on what we don't and won't use after we tried it or became intimidated by it. Or just left it alone after we got it.

Me I have a few things that I have but don't us, one is some stencils, alpha and shaped ones. I also have the Masks for using with the glimmer sprays. I have used my sprays on flowers and such but always forget about the masks in my organizer. I have a shape cutter as well, don't know where its at in my craftroom but its there. I have flocking powder I haven't touched. I also have another tool that came out years ago, can't recall the name at the moment, but used it a few times and it doesn't get used. I noticed that it takes me rearranging and moving stuff to find stuff and then use it for awhile and then I find new goodies and the old ones get pushed aside.
I like my fastentor although I don't use it that often. I love using it to attach ribbon to tags.
