What are some techniques for creating multi-color distressed prints with heat transfer foil?

Answer

Creating two-color distressed effects with foil is very easy. First, crumble up the primary color of foil into a ball in your hand. Then, flatten it out a bit to lay over the adhesive for heat application. After pressing and peeling, there will be distressed areas where the adhesive is still exposed. Take a complimentary color of foil and lay it flat over the top of the entire design, completing one additional application. This layer will fill all the void areas to create a unique two-tone, distressed print. You can also alter distressed levels by how much you crumble up the initial foil layer until you get your intended result.
