What do you guys think? I'm planning on offering this to companies for their products at expos etc.
First I took a nice quality jetski pic, printed to JPSS light and then made an a "shiny" area, mostly where the black is in illlustrator to be plotted. I used some Brilliant Cristal (not sure about the exact name) foil, which is much thicker than your regular flex and should be cut with a 60° blade like flock foils.
Then I pressed the JPSS light transfer for a shorter time than usual, hot peel, let it cool down and let the press cool down to a lower temp, then pressed the cristal over it. The cristal thins out a lot during the press.
The result is something like those drink cards that Coke and other companies have, where everything is matte, but the little bottles are very shiny. I'm very very pleased with the effect.
I did this because I bought some various effect flex foils (chrome, paint, glow etc.) and I'm just trying unusual combinations.
Of course it looks totally different in real life, hard to take a picture of it, the gloss changes due to light and it just looks like the product is "popping out".
Looks great to me!
SO, where did you get these "effect flex foils (chrome, paint, glow etc.) " ?
