Today I’m taking a look at how the We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill performs on surfaces besides cardstock, including clear acetate, vellum, Dura-Lar (an acetate alternative), and wood veneer sheets. I tested all of the surfaces with both the fine tip and standard tip Foil Quill tools, and the settings that I used are a speed of 10, a force of 22, and a single pass. I used the Foil Quill brand foil for testing.
Overally, I’m really happy with how the Foil Quill performed on all of the different surfaces, and I was very pleasantly surprised by how it performed on the more textured wood veneer sheets. This means that there are SO many additional creative possibilities with the Foil Quill if you want to go beyond using it on paper and cardstock. Gotta love that!
Check out the video below to see all of the test results, and keep scrolling in this post to see photos of all of the results.
