Hot Foil Gel & Flock Sheets – A How To

I love using the hot foil gel from The Crafter’s Workshop. It is the perfect medium for adding foil to your stenciling and the results are always fantastic! But did you know you could use that same Hot Foil Gel Medium to add flocking to your stenciling? It’s so easy, and that is what today’s video tutorial is all about. Be sure to watch it below!

Tips & Tricks Using Hot Foil Gel & Flock Sheets

Using hot foil gel with your flock sheets is a little different than foiling. First, you want to put the fuzzy side of the flock sheets AGAINST your gel. With foiling the shiny side, or the side you want to show, faces away from the foil. But it’s the exact opposite with the flock sheets, so keep that in mind!

Another thing, the foiling machine or laminator needs to be as hot as you can get it! I like to let mine heat up for at least 30 minutes. I also run the flock and paper through my machine twice.

Finally, when you foil, once you have ran it through your laminator the foil seems to release really easily. The flock needs a bit of pulling. Just forewarning!


I hope you all enjoyed a look at how you can use your hot foil gel along with flock sheets to add some fun texture to your cards and projects! The products I used are all listed below. Until next time, happy crafting!!
