Hi all! For this months Technique Tuesday we are focusing on foiling! Did you know, you can do foiling without using a machine? Today, Emily will be showing you how to use TCW's foil transfer sheets with their Tacky-when-Dry gel. Let's get started!
Check out the full process video below!
The nice thing about this type of foiling, is you don't really need a lot of supplies or a big machine. It's very simple and a lot of fun! First step, grab your foil & Tacky-When-Dry Medium Gel. Apply a thin amount of the gel onto your stencil.
Next, carefully remove your stencil by holding down one corner and lifting. Allow the gel to dry for about 10 minutes. You will know it's ready when it has a sticky feel, but not wet. Then, you will place your foil, back side down, onto the stenciled part of your project.
Next, just use your fingers to carefully rub the foil onto the gel. Finally, remove the foil to reveal the end result! And it's really that simple!
Hope you enjoyed this technique! Let us know in the comments if you've ever tried this way of foiling!
