Hello Bestie Deco Foil Metallix Layout
Using the Deco Foil Metallix
Prep background paper by placing a stencil over it and using the Purple Tape OR the new Pixie Spray to hold the stencil in place.
Using a palette knife place the Metallix on the open area of the stencil and smooth on (we’re not kidding when we say it is buttery smooth!) with the new Stencil Pal. This new tool covers a lot more area when you are spreading your product around and allows you to get full coverage making it quicker and easier to complete your project. As soon as you are happy with the areas you want to be covered, remove your stencil and wash it and the Stencil Pal with some water and you are good to go for next time! Now let the Metallix dry, it took mine about an hour, times will vary on drying depending on your climate and house temps.
Meanwhile, work on laminating your Deco Foil Clear Toner Sheet with the color of foil you choose. Layout uses the new Pink Quartz color. Don’t be afraid to usual unusual colors with the clear toner sheets, They can create a really fun background that you might not have thought of!
The Pink Quartz Deco Foil Transfer Sheet just adds a subtle touch, while the Gold Metallix stands out on this layout.
To create layers behind your picture area use the various foam adhesives that Therm O Web has. Below, you can see that I used some Deco Foil Foam Adhesive scraps from a prior project for some of my layers.
If you have an item you want to use that isn’t quite big enough, you can always cut it in half, like the doily below. The goal was to have it show on the sides the picture and it was a little too small. Cutting in half and “covering” the cut is the perfect way to make something work!
Deco Foil Metallix Shine
By using the Deco Foil Metallix you have a great way to add Metallix shine to your project and without bulk if that is something you are worried about. It dries fairly quickly, adds incredible shine, dimension and is very easy to work with. And a little goes a long way, so you get more mileage from your product!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Have a great week!!
