Five Gold Foil Techniques from Jennifer McGuire Ink

Sunday, August 16, 2015

This is my FIRST actual gold foil tester using the fifth technique from the video below!

Check out Jennifer's awesome YouTube channel HERE. I can say that I have personally used the fifth technique and it totally WORKS! And I'd say it's the most durable. I never knew the other techniques existed until I came across her channel. How fun is this for some DIY gifts?! Since trying this technique a couple of months ago, I added some prints to my Etsy shop and customers are loving them! It's a little bit of an investment and definitely one of those 'trial and error, you learn more as you go' DIY's, but I have lots of fun with it!

I use the same brand foil she does, but I have a different laminator [one that I have had for quite some time now]. Enjoy!

**Update! I have since purchased the Heidi Swapp Minc machine to foil and it is the ABSOLUTE BOMB! I highly recommend the Therm O Web deco foil however, because it is much thicker and better quality in my opinion. :]

This is the most popular print in my shop so far :]
