Shade Tex Texture Rubbing Plates

Have you tried the fantastic shade tex rubbing plates, they can be used on paper, foil and even clay. They are quite simple to use, just place your paper on top of the texture plate and draw directly onto your paper leaving an imprint of the texture sheet underneath.

They are great for use with cardmaking and scrapbooking as well as for use with polymer clay, the texture sheets can be rolled through a past machine with the clay or a roller or brayer can be used instead, just remember to use water or talcum powder as a release agent for the clay so that they don't stick to the texture sheets.

They are available in 5 different sets, each with 6 different texture plates.

We now stock them in store they can be found at the following locatiin
