Using a pair of scissors or paper punch, cut out the desired shape from the glueFOIL.
Position foil onto item to be embellished.
Note: There is no fixative used beyond what the foil has on it already--the foil is held in place carefully, with your hands, while you apply the heat.
Using an iron of your choice, apply heat to the surface of the glueFOIL to activate the adhesive. Hold for a second or two depending on the heat of the tool.
Do not rub or shift iron on the surface (like you would do if ironing a shirt) as the glueFOIL will move out of position
If once in place, you do not like the position of the glueFOIL, reheat and adjust accordingly
If needed, carefully use a craft knife to trim the edges of the glueFOIL close to the edge of the item
glueFOIL can be further enhanced with a distressed finish by rubbing the surface with polishing papers
An antiqued look can be achieved by applying a light coat of dark acrylic paint then rubbing it off with a soft cloth, leaving the paint in the crevices of any texture applied to the surface. To seal the paint, finish with Mona Lisa Metal Leaf top coat.
Optional: Emboss glueFOIL with the Epic Six Quickutz tool.
