Am having trouble using the gel - no matter how carefully I take off my stencil or how lightly I apply the gel, I still wind up with some product seeping under and I get a messy image. Any suggestions? How about repositionable spray adhesive before I put down the stencil? I love the look but just can't get it right.

Carrie, Only the Transfer get seems to work with the foil and I have tried so many! We should have it back in stock later this week.

Do you  have to use Deco Foil Transferring gel? Can you use Modge Podge or other transferring gels?

Comment by Gina Krupsky on May 15, 2017 at 4:38pm

I'm going to try to answer as many questions as I can here: 

1. Yes, this gel can be used with metal stencils. Just make sure drop the stencil in some water once you use it so that the gel stays soft and it will make it easier to clean.

2. Negative- I have a video on this here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twdIcdU5PPU

3. Setting the Gel- Let it air dry until it turns clear and then run it through the laminator with the foil.

4. Do we sell the gel- Yes, we do have the gel. It will be back in around Friday.  

5. Laminator- You can use any laminator that is Thermal Laminator. Not a cold laminator.

Hope that helps! :)

Really beautiful! The foils really add a special touch and you did a great job of showing many ways to use the gel. I also would like to see how the negatives can be used to create another look. love the "watercolor look".Thank you
