We make our bone folders from a strong, non-contaminating and non-stick material, which means that adhesives, inks and paints will not stick to it.
If you use a traditional bone folder made of bone or plastic, you know its tendency to get worn down, discolored, and stained with age; this leads to messy clean up or worse, contamination of your next project. This is not the case with our bone folder; it will only get smoother and shinier with age while making clean up a snap and best of all it won't leave a shiny mark when rubbed over your work.
Some of the most common uses we have seen or heard about include:
- pressing down folds, - burnishing - sticking layers - folding, creasing, & scoring paper & fabric - card making - handmade books - book repair & conservation - origami - ribbon curling - paper quilling (paper filigree) - burnishing transfers - tailoring - stained glass art - dimensional paint techniques - gift wrapping - removing pieces from molds
