How To Play with 3 Simple Minc Techniques
fun: something that provides mirth or amusement. Enjoyment or playfulness.
Creative fun: something that provides creative enjoyment or playfulness. That’s what today’s post is about. Using the Minc Machine and foils and mediums to just play with some ideas. No agenda. No photos. Just a few inspirations on how to add Minc touches pretty much anywhere.
Here we go:
First of all, you will need a few things to play along:
Minc Texture Paste
Minc Transfer Medium
Minc Foil of choice
Double Sided 1/4 Inch Adhesive Tape
low tack tape
general crafting tools
For this first tag I used a DIY stencil (this stencil was made with a background die and cut with cardstock). The stencil was laid over the tag. Then Minc Texture Paste was applied over the stencil allowing the paste to go through the heart design. Allowing the Texture Paste to dry completely, the tag was then placed through the Minc Machine according to manufacturers directions and foiled. We’ll see the results below.
The second technique is a sort of reverse stencil idea. A star punch was used to punch out shapes from a low tack tape. The tape shapes were then placed on the tag. Using a cosmetic sponge the Minc Transfer Medium was painted all over the tag. The Transfer Medium dries quickly, so you want to work sort of quick. Again, run through Minc Machine according to directions for foiled results.
You can see all the results here in the above image.
For the third technique, the double sided tape was used to create stripes on the lower portion of the tag. This is a super easy technique that does not even really need the machine to apply the foil. Lay the Minc Foil over the adhesive and simply yet gently burnish the foil to the tape. This technique works with any sort of adhesive device you utilize.
Three Minc Techniques. Three Minc results. Three ways to take foil and mediums and create some creative fun.
