Reactive foil is a unique type of foil. Sold in rolls from Spotlight, selected craft stores or online, it can be used with a metallic foil applicator machine like the Heidi Swapp Minc to add shiny foil to designs. Buy ready-to-foil papers, stickers and die cuts, or make your own designs with a laser printer. The foil can also be used with double-sided tape without a machine.
Gather your supplies:
• Minc preprinted paper, sticker or die cut, or image printed in black with a laser printer
• Minc foil applicator machine and carrier pouch
• Roll of reactive foil
Place your paper or stickers right side up in the carrier pouch. Cut foil to size and lay coloured side up over paper.
Using the correct heat setting (regular paper and card is setting 3, other products will list their heat setting), let the rollers grab the carrier pouch and run it through the machine.
When it comes out, open pouch and peel off the foil sheet. Where the design was black will now be shiny with foil.
