Kay - New products on CoolKatz website

Hello,  We have recently added GrafixArts products to our shop, three for now but hopefully more soon!   I'm proud to represent GrafixArts on Hochanda showing some of their wonderful products.


Double Tac is a double sided adhesive sheet that gives a strong bond and is fully archival.  Maggie gave it a rigorous testing and found it excellent for sticking spines into an album cover, it was so much easier than applying strips from tape rolls.


Artist Tac is a dry adhesive film perfect for clean crafting and is a favourite of Rosemary's, one of our DT team!   Just the thing to make your own stickers, perfect with die cutting and can also be used for backgrounds.  More from me soon about Artist Tac.


The other project is Dura-Lar Matte- one of my favourites!  Dura-Lar is a polyester film, archival, non-tearing, lays flat and can be heat embossed.  It comes in three different forms, Clear, Wet Media and Matte. And it fussy cuts to perfection!


Bee (from IndigoBlu) stamped onto Wet Media painted with acrylic paints and cut out - even the anatine!  


Clear is an alternative for acetate it is not  brittle and  is non-yellowing.  Wet Media has a special coating that allows water based paints and inks to be applied without beading.

Matte Dura-Lar is a translucent film with a beautifully smooth surface- it's so tactile you can spend ages just stroking it!  It has a unique machine finish that accepts inks, paints, colouring pens and pencils (and these can be rubbed out too!) and stamps beautifully on both sides.  Lots of creative opportunities!


These are just a few ideas;


Inked background with die-cuts on it, Matt Dura-Lar overlaid (attached just on the edges) die cut foliage stuck with Artist-Tac.  The butterflies are die cuts, outlined in black, the solid from Matt Dura-Lar coloured with Copic pen. 



Matt Dura-lar, alcohol inks on reverse side, adhered with Artist-Tac over white background with die cut shapes.


Tea-light holder - Alcohol inks on Matte film, stamping on both sides.



Hope you have enjoyed to this quick introduction to our GrafixArts products.


Take care,  Kay xx
