Alternate Design Methods
Matte Finish – A second application will give the foil a less mirror-like, more matte finish. After your initial application, let cool, peel the transfer foil away and place the garment under the heat press again using a cover sheet.
Distressed – Crumple the foil and then heat apply. The result is a custom “crackle” finish that’s still shiny and reflective. The more crumpled you make the foil, the more distressed the look.
Multi-Color Effect – Apply the distressed foil as usual. Once it’s cool, peel back the foil and apply a different color piece of smooth foil to fill in the voids. You can also cut the foil into pieces and layer them on top of the adhesive to make a multi color effect without distressing.
