How to get started?

There are several ways to apply foil to your craft, in this article we focus on heat-activated foils, with the Modelcraft Foil Art Pen everything you need is right there in the kit!


How does it work?

  1. Lay the foil across the surface you wish to decorate, keeping the shiny side up, ensure it's flat and secure in place with some low-tack masking tape.
  2. Plug the Foil Art Pen into a USB port and allow it to heat up.
  3. After a few minutes the pen will be ready, simply touch the tip gently to the surface of the foil and write or draw!


Tips & Tricks

Before starting your project it's best to test the design out on some scrap paper or card, try out different styles, and have fun!

Print out a design and secure it above the foil, you can use this as a stencil and the heat will still reach through.

Always take care when using a heat tool, don't leave it running unattended, and be sure to replace it on the stand when not in use.
