S1066. M. G. Ward Professional Hot Foiling Kit
S1066. M. G. Ward Professional Hot Foiling Kit

Developed by renowned penman Mike Ward and used for his own work, his hot-foil tool is now available for all who want to add bright, reflective gold to their projects on leather, cardstock, wood, and other surfaces. Mike tested and refined this professional-quality tool over several years before he was ready to put his name on it (literally). This tool works best with his Premium Heat Transfer Foil but will work with other brands of foil as well.
The kit includes an adjustable, low-heat power supply (110V), carefully calibrated for foil work, and a heat pen with 3 interchangeable writing tips, both manufactured in Canada; assorted 10-sheet pack of Mike's heat transfer foil; 3 practice leather bookmarks; and access to an online instructional video, detailing the foiling process. The ball-stylus tips are for monoline strokes and building up stressed (thick) parts of Spencerian and other scripts; two sizes are included, 0.4mm (1/64") and 0.8mm (1/32"). The calligraphy tip (4.5mm) is for broad-edged letterforms.

This tool works best with M. G. Ward Foil.

1oz. or 3oz. wide-mouth jars
2oz. Nalgene dropper bottle
Bulk 1-liter bottle

Reggie Ezell, Harvest Crittenden, and Sheila Waters use this synthetic size for raised, mirror-finish gilding with gold leaf. They and many others have found it easier to use than traditional gesso made from slaked plaster. Yellow color allows you to see what you have applied.
