Metallic rub-ons are a wax based, non toxic color palette used for adding color or metallic shine and luster to your art projects. It will work on either coated, glossy or plain paper cardstocks, as well as metallic paper, metal tooling, sealing wax, velour paper or melted embossing powders. The color is applied with sponge applicators or with your finger. When applying color with your fingertip, begin lightly and sparingly at first to avoid a fingerprint. Build up color gradually until the image is as dark as you wish. Practice applying rub-ons smoothly with your fingertip on scrap paper before using it on your card. Learn to blend the colors and metallic finishes together, for some very interesting shades and highlights. Add color on color to obtain highlights. Buff the color as you apply it, to get the shiny look of metal. When your project is finished, allow some drying time for the rub-ons to set. If it still seems to come off easily, you may need to spray your project with a fixative to seal it.
