Hot Foiling

This something I have wanted to be able to do for some time but the equipment has has always been too large and too expensive unless one is a professional printer.

Now there is a new machine has been manufactured - aimed specifically at crafters - such as myself. Mine arrived last Saturday and I am beginning to appreciate it's potential.

Apparently it can be used on plastic, chipboard, acetate and cellophane as well as on card. YouTube rules !!

Here are my first attempts -

You must need a steady hand for this kind of work, almost like applying gold leaf.

That was so when I was using a hot stylus and tracing paper, Nom. With this magic machine it is easier. I can use all my existing craft dies, so no more tracing, and - as long as I load them correctly - the results should be good. It will be fun to learn anyway !

Looks amazing Tabby. You are a clever girl, I know it takes time, I have had my time with gold leaf.
