Minc Foil Applicator (Australian Plug) ... by Heidi Swapp - Full sized Minc Machine with a "mini" 6.5" wide workspace. Use heated motorised rollers to create permanent, smooth metallic finishes to your artwork.
With the Heidi Swapp Minc Foiling System, you can achieve professional foil effects quickly and easily using the machine, heat reactive foils (sold separately in dozens of colours), cardstock or paper, and a foiling adhesive.
The adhesive can be almost anything ... laser or ink toner (pen, ink, spray, screen ink), Minc Ink (instore soon), Minc Texture Paste, matte medium, tacky glue, Distress Resist Spray, Ranger's Embossing Powder, almost anything - have a play with what you have, making sure to use heat resistant mediums nothing flammable! Plus, ensure the adhesive of choice is completely dry before running through the Minc Machine with the beautiful foils.
If you have access to a laser printer (not bubblejet or inkjet - it needs to be toner because toner heats up to enable the foil to stick) - you have the versatility to add foil to any design you can draw or type. Simply place the foil on the printout and run through your Minc Machine. Try black and white photos, lettering, phrases, numbers, patterns... there are no limits to what you can foil!
Once the foil has been applied using the Minc Machine (Minc Mini Foil Applicator), it is permanent, smooth and scratch resistant.
