Transfer Gel Duo and some paper printed with Toner ink and ran through my Minc
I bought some transfer gel due from amazon and tried it out. This Duo gel will work with the Minc (hot foil) as well as through your manual die cutting machine. I will try both and show you the results.
Deco Foil Transfer Gel DUO
Manual Die cutting machine
First I tried foiling with my Minc.
Look at the great results!
I used this stencil from Park Lane.
This is what my stencil looked like after applying the transfer gel duo.
I lifted the stencil off and let it dry completely clear.
After it dried I applied the foil and ran it through my Minc.
Below are a few other stencils I used. I am not sure where I got them but some of them came from The Dollar Tree.
Next, I will use my Sizzix Sidekick to get the duo gel to transfer.
It works, no heat needed! The foil isn't as smooth but if you wanted to use your manual die cutter you could. Its best to use cutting plates that are not scored up because you will be able to see the scoring in your foil.
Simply run the foil covered due gel transfer through your machine and peel the excess foil off.
I have been trying some of my black papers to see if they were printed with toner ink and will take foils with my Minc.
I got this perfect paper in my mystery box from the Paper Collage and it turned out perfect for my VW Beetle scrapbook.
This paper was black and white. I covered it with teal foil and ran it through my mink. Now it matches my VW Beetle book perfectly. I cannot wait to use it.
I tried another sheet that was printed with toner ink but it had really fine detail and most of it was covered up. It still turned out super fun. I might use it as a die cut for VW beetles or something.
I will keep posting as I find new techniques.
Leave a comment if you want to see new ways to foil or know any that I have not posted.
