Default Re: embossed tinsel

Yes....good embossed metal tinsel is getting harder and harder to find. My supply of French embossed tinsel is getting low.....especially the silver. I put at least 2 coats of clear varnish on the tinsel and let it dry before finishing the streamer. I usually spend a couple of hours just making tinsel bodies on different sized streamer hooks and when I need to make some streamers, I always have some already covered with embossed tinsel.
All I can find in my region is mylar tinsel and I hate the stuff.
