Printing on foil question.

28 posts in this topic

Husky, Did you spray clear on the foil before printing on it?

Also, try the foil tape used in AC duct work. Maybe using spray adhesive and then layering the tape on the paper. Since its self adhesive ( the tape ) you should be able to put it on the lure with no problems.

Just a thought.

Wouldn't be easyer to just put a clear decal over a silvery paint job?? Just asking!? I don't know, because i haven't seen any decals yet, but'll se some tomorrow or the day after :)). Got some advice?

Gator_Fan: the best program out there for photo-editing in my opinion is Adobe Photoshop. Its very expensive, but maybe you'll know someone w/ a copy available.

savacs: If you'll go to my post, "water slide decal beginnings" I had actually taken and decal and placed it over the foil layer underneath. It looks good, but i had too many bubbles in the clearcoat after all those layers.

Husky, it seems to me that if you spray the foil with any type of clear fixative it will fog up and become less shiny. I'm curious as to whether or not you can contiunually rub the foil smooth without the ink coming off. Good idea to heat it w/ a hairdryer! Keep at this thing!
