You can add special effects to your work such as transfer foils using Bondaweb.
These are transfer foils. They come in a range of colours and I got mine from a quilt show. If your local shop does not have them, try a craft retailer or online.
Choose your design to have the transfer foils applied to. Using Bondaweb cut out shapes and apply them SMOOTH side up with a hot iron ( no steam ) directly onto your design.
Now peel off the paper from the bondaweb.
Lay the transfer foil coloured side UP over your design.
Next, lay a piece of grease proof paper/ baking parchment over the foil and press with a hot iron ( no steam) for a few seconds.
Gently peel the foil from the design and the you will see where the colour has been transfered onto the bondaweb.
A word of caution here , I do not know if the foils are washable after they are applied as I have not finished this piece yet and it was my first time of using the foils.
I have a feeling they may be suitable for art quilts only but I will come back and let you know how this quilt turns out after washing.
Have fun with your foils!
