easy image transfer to metal tape
Here's a quick tutorial for a super easy image transfer to metal tape! It only takes minutes to do!

I'm using Ranger's Inkssentials Foil Tape which already has adhesive on the back. You'll also want a Mister filled with water and a laser photocopy - inkjet won't work so laser copy. Hint if you put a dab of water on your copy and ink runs. It's an ink jet! This kind won't work! 

 Cut out a small piece of Ranger's Inkssentials Foil Tape to fit your image size. Peel off the paper backing from the foil tape.

  Place photocopy face down into sticky side of foil tape 

  Burnish with a craft stick

  Spray with water using Inkssentials Mister.

  Rub to remove the paper

Apply Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi Medium in Gloss to remove remaining sticky. Use Gloss so the metal stays nice and shiny.

Finished transfer!
