Hi, i normally rub them over with trex off of my hand & when i have got the pate on the lettrs i run the rolling pin over the letters from the front side then bash them out.

There is a video on youtube that shows you how.

Hope this helps

gucci9o6  try useing a little cornflour when you cut out the letters or numbers leave the paste in the tappit for a few seconds then tap .Do you take the middle out of you’r   exsp     O’P  with a pin before you tap it out?     hope this helps

It can also help if you let the paste dry out just a little so it doesn’t stick as much. I used to have the same problem and almost gave up on them, they can be tricky, but now I love them!

I use a small paintbrush to push the letters out from the back!

I grease the letter I want before use and it really is a good bash rather than a tap.  When desperate I have greased the paste first.  You might want to look at Windsor Clikstix
