Foil Quill: 15 Different Materials Tested

I wanted to put the Foil Quill by We R Memory Keepers to the test with 15 very different materials and see how well the foil adhered. With my testing, I used Spellbinders Glimmer Foil in a variety of colors and used my Cricut Maker for all the tests. I will list out what color with the item number from the package, which quill point I used and what setting I used on my Cricut Maker.






1. Satin Ribbon

Foil Color: Aura   Item #: GLF-027
Quill: Medium
Setting: Satin Silk


2. Acetate (Stamp Packaging)

Foil Color: Teal   Item #: GLF-012
Quill: Fine
Setting: Stencil Film


3. Aluminum

FAILED - Tried several pressure settings and it would not stick


4. Glitter Paper (No Shed & Adhesive backed - From Dollar Tree)

Foil Color: Pink from the Metallic & Holographic Variety Pack    Item #: GLF-012
Quill: Medium
Setting: Cardstock Intricate


5. Vellum

Foil Color: Black   Item #: GLF-010
Quill: Medium
Setting: Vellum


6. Printable Magnet Sheet

Foil Color: Crimson Stars   Item #: GLF-030
Quill: Medium
Setting: Magnet Sheet .6mm


7. Craft Foam 3mm

Foil Color: Cobalt Blue   Item #: GLF-020
Quill: Medium
Setting: Craft Foam


8. Cotton Fabric

Foil Color: Cobalt Blue   Item #: GLF-020
Quill: Fine
Setting: Cotton
This does scratch off, so I wouldn't put it on items that will go through wear and tear. Not sure if it is the foil brand or just the nature of the foiling.


9. Organza Fabric

Foil Color: Gold from the Metallic Gold & Silver Variety Pack   Item #: GLF-012
Quill: Fine
Setting:Organza
My guess is this will also scratch off, like the cotton, but I didn't want to scratch at this, as I have a project in mind for this.


10. Minky Fabric

FAILED - Ripped Foil and what did adhere, did not have a shiny finish at all.


11. Jeans / Denim Fabric

FAILED - Did not adhere well, scratches off and did not have a shiny finish at all.


12. Cricut Felt (Stiff Felt)

Foil Color: Holographic Speckle  from the Metallic & Holographic Variety Pack   Item #: GLF-012
Quill: Medium
Setting: Felt


13. Leather

Foil Color: Cobalt Blue   Item #: GLF-020
Quill: Medium
Setting:Leather


14. Basswood 1/16" Thick

Foil Color:Silver from the Metallic Gold & Silver Variety Pack   Item #: GLF-011
Quill: Fine
Setting:Basswood 1/16"
I stained this with Distress Stain in Chipped Saphire first and let dry overnight before foiling.


15. Textured Canvas Board 1.3mm Thick

Foil Color: Silver Holographic Facets from the Metallic & Holographic Variety Pack   Item #: GLF-012
Quill: Medium
Setting: Stencil Film Setting
I got the SVG File from Creative Fabrica, but I could not locate it on their site to link it. Sorry!
