How to Foil Your Stamping

You can make your own foiled embellishments with this fun and relaxing technique. Using DecoFoil and a rubber stamp you create your image, and then use watercolors to finish coloring the images. The foil acts as a resist for the watercolor leaving its glimmer behind.

Many of the items I use in posts are provided by the manufacturers to promote their products.

  • stamp block

  • DecoFoil
  • DecoFoil transfer adhesive pen
  • Derwent Inktense pencils
  • Yatsutomo Metallic watercolor paints

Since we are using an adhesive product on your stamp, you might want to use an older or less expensive stamp. It is very important to thoroughly clean off your stamp with soap and water after using this technique.

It is really difficult to capture the beauty of these pieces on camera due to the reflective nature of the foil. The watercolor and foil together make for a very unique combination. I think this is one of my favorite techniques to create. Probably more for the enjoyment of the process but the outcome is pretty nice too!
