Instructions for Use

Gray Glue

  • Glue can be applied to your cloth any way that you can apply paint
  • Print with stamps, screen print (make sure to wash screens quickly as glue dries very quickly), stencil, brush
  • Printing on cloth works best if you use a padded print surface such as a piece of craft felt
  • Allow gray glue to dry completely, overnight is best for thicker applications
  • A hair dryer can speed up the drying process

Foil

  • Lay a a solid heat proof surface such as a metal cookie sheet on top of your ironing board
  • Lay your fabric, glue side up onto the metal sheet
  • Lay foil COLOR SIDE UP on top of the glue
  • Use a piece of parchment on top to protect the foil until you figure out how hot your iron is
  • Scrape firmly with the edge of your iron, cotton setting – both heat and pressure are required
  • Let the fabric cool then peel away foil
  • Move foil and repeat the process for any areas that did not transfer
  • You can use the foil over and over until the foil sheet is entirely used up
  • Foil adhered to fabric is gently machine washable
