I tried really hard yesterday to make some little flowers and cover them with UTEE.
First thing to happen when I had finished them, was a great big aeroplane landed on the table.
Fortunately, the little flowers hopped onto the wing so were quite safe.
I managed to assemble the petals after colouring them with DI, but when it came to dipping them in the UTEE, the trouble began again. The tweezers clogged up and stuck hard to the petals and I had to prise them off using my metal tweezers - which promptly stuck - so I prised those off with a pokey tool. I then had flowers with 2 pairs of tweezers and a pokey tool stuck to them!!
Trying to cover a bead with UTEE and placing that in the centre was the last straw.
I think I will give this technique a miss for a while, or at least until I've forgotten that I ever tried it.
