I've had a roll of Deco Foil sitting in my stash for well over a year. Never used. When the MFT pulled out foiling for the 'craft of the day' at 'camp' I was both trepidatious and relieved. I hate when I buy something that I never get around to using!
I didn't go big, but I did get it done. :)
Check out those shiny little tail feathers! The best part is that I've not gotten over my fear of "wasting it". You see, I don't have a fancy laminating machine to heat set the foil and I didn't buy the special adhesive that you're supposed to use with it and I think that's why I've felt stuck this whole time. Enter my trusty ol' Xyron. Worked like charm!
Have you tried foiling?
