Place the foil screen in the screen printer. Use a soft squeegee and slow stroke to make a
smooth even thick film of adhesive on the shirt. A sequence of print, flash, print may be
necessary to both have the adhesive engage the fibers of the shirt and be above the shirt enough
to adhere the foil. Too little glue causes poor adhesion; too much will cause the glue to melt
from under the foil, resulting in uneven edges. The printed glue should have a smooth,
glass-like finish. Foil will adhere to both plastisol inks as well as foil adhesives so you must
either combine foil with water-based inks or else use a “foil resist” additive in the plastisol
inks in the non-foil portions of your print. You may print a grey layer of ink under a silver
foil and a gold/yellow layer of ink under a golden foil, etc., or dye the glue grey or gold.
Doing this means someone will not see that the foil is peeling or falling off of some pin spots
after the first washes, and the image will look fresh for longer.
