Cracking Vellum

lorraine303February 13, 2003

I was trying to make some folded paper stars with some beautiful gold vellum and the points keep cracking. Is there someway to avoid this, or do you think it's just the paper, cause the blue I used didn't crack? Or maybe I should try wetting the paper? Any thoughts? TIA Lorraine

Someone must have the answer. My first thought was water. maybe hot water - really hot. I know a heat gun will practically destroy it but maybe if you try a piece in the hottest water your fingers can stand it might work, At least the water shouldn't hurt it.
