Fashion Plates and Action Plates
Q: How do I get the best rubbing results from my set?
A: These suggestions should help you get the most detail from your Fashion Plates and Action Plates drawing sets. First place your chosen plates in the drawing tablet and hold the frame in place with one hand while drawing to secure the paper.
• Rub back and forth with the rubbing crayon in small motions on the paper.
• Rub with a light pressure; pressing too hard with the crayon may leave more smudges and extra marks outside the design.
• You may need to rub over some areas more than once. Try rubbing diagonally and sideways to fill in any missed areas. Any crayon naturally gets a wear pattern from doing rubbings, so turning it in different directions a few times while creating the design helps to even it out and reach any areas missed by the crayon.
• Be sure to rub the whole design before opening the frame or moving the paper.
• Also note: Temperature changes may affect the consistency of any wax crayon. If your crayon warms up from excess use, it may smudge. If you are experiencing smudging at any time, you may try placing your crayon in the freezer temporarily.
Q: Where can I get more rubbing crayons?
A: If your rubbing crayon wears down over time from use, it can be replaced with a high-quality children’s coloring crayon. Harder, less waxy crayons tend to work best. Adults, carefully cut the new crayon to approximately 1.75 inches (4.5 cm) in length and remove the paper wrapper from the crayon. Slide the crayon into the rubbing tool and press in firmly.
Q: Where can I get another Fashion Plates or Action Plates rubbing tool?
A: If you would like to purchase a replacement rubbing tool (with crayon), please click here.
Q: Where can I get more Fashion Plates paper?
A: You can download printable design paper from the Fashion Plates website! You can also use almost any plain standard paper with Fashion Plates. It’s okay for larger paper to extend past the tablet, just be sure to still hold the frame in place with one hand while coloring, so it doesn’t move. If you wish to have paper that fits inside the fashion carry case, 8.5” x 11” paper folded or cut in half works well.
Q: Where can I get more Action Plates comic scene paper?
A: Downloadable/printable comic scene paper can be found on the Action Plates website. You can also use almost any plain standard paper with Action Plates. It’s okay for larger paper to extend past the tablet, just be sure to still hold the frame in place with one hand while coloring, so it doesn’t move.
Q: I lost my instruction guide; where can I get a new one?
Q: My Colorforms pieces aren't sticking—what do I do?
A: We recommend wiping both your Colorforms pieces and the playboard surface with a damp cloth—sometimes dirt or dust will make the playsets less sticky.
Q: Why are my Popoid tubes so stiff?
A: When Popoids are brand new, they need a little breaking in — a stretch and a squeeze will really get them popping! Compress and stretch each tube a few times before starting your creation.
Q: How do I fix an indented or flattened Popoid tube?
A: Sometimes squishing the tube closed will return it to its original shape, or you can open the tube fully and insert a capped pen or unsharpened pencil into the wide end to push out the indentation.
Q: Where can I find more Popoids construction ideas?
Q: I lost the instruction sheet for my LatchKits kit. Where can I get another one?
