Sizzix Effectz Decorative Foil Sheets 6"x6" 10/Pkg - GOLD
Add shimmer and shine to any project. This pack of 10 sheets can add a metallic element to your projects with or without the use of hot foiling! Simple to use yet they provide a stunning effect. These are great in combination with stencils.
Here's a few Stencil & Foil Techniques:
- Foil all over - No Heat needed: Apply our TCW Tacky When Dry Gel Medium through a stencil. Then remove stencil and let the gel dry completely. Next, lay the foil on top (colored side up). Use your fingers to rub the foil all over and then peel it away. Beautiful!
- Acrylic paint with Foil highlights - No Heat needed: Gently dab acrylic paint onto your stencil. Remove stencil and allow the paint to dry completely. Clean your stencil. Now line your stencil back up, over the pattern. Apply the gel medium on just the tips or edges of your pattern, as highlights. Remove the stencil and let the gel medium dry completely. Next, lay the foil on top (colored side up). Use your fingers to rub the foil on those tips and edges and then peel it away. This adds a lovely shimmer effect!
- Laminator method: Follow the same process as either of the above methods. After the gel medium has dried completely, place the foil sheet on your pattern. Next, place it into a piece of folded baking parchment paper and run it through your laminator machine. Laminating gives it a very smooth finish.
