Screen Print Foils
Add a brilliant metallic effect using print screen foils. Roll over the t-shirt photo for a closer look at the leopard foil used in the kitty motif. Requires heat transfer adhesive.
How to use:
- Mirror Image your design just like you would for any heat transfer material and cut adhesive on your cutter adhesive side up. Weed to remove excess adhesive.
TIP: Placing on a dark surface makes it easier to see cut lines when weeding.
- Place your weeded adhesive on your garment and apply heat for 2-3 seconds with light pressure. Peel hot.
- Cut a piece of heat transfer foil larger than the weeded design.
- Place over the adhesive, cover with Kraft paper or a reusable cover sheet and press at 300F/149C for 10 seconds with firm pressure. PEEL COLD
TIP: It is imperative to wait until the application is fully cooled in order for the adhesive to fully bond the foil to the design for a mirror finish.
- If you press the foil again, it will diminish the mirror like finish to a more matte finish.
- If you crumble the foil and then smooth it out before pressing, you will get a distressed look.
- Create multi-color look with two colors of foil. Crumple the first foil color and apply. Let cool and PEEL COLD. Lay the next color over top the existing foil application. Press and peel cold. The second color will fill in the voids of the first foil left by the distressing.
