*Silhouette Cameo 3 used.

4- Click on the sketch tool.

5- As you can see there are a lot of sketch options in the designer and business editions of silhouette studio.

6- Click on a sketch style. I have selected the cross hatch.

7- You can add a edge on your text.

8- You can also select a circular sketch fill to give a different effect and adjust the spacing.

9- In the business edition you have advanced sketch options also. click the advanced icon.

10- With the advanced options you can adjust the outline of the text you can make 3D effects or scribbles. Click on a edge effect.

11- You can also change your fill type in the advanced options.

12- When selecting a fill type in advanced options you can then go a step further and change the fill effect. There is a collection of adjustments you can use to change the length, width density and curvature of your fill.

13- Click on the send icon. Change your tool to the sketch tool. change the media, then speed to 5, force to 4 and passes to 1. Click send.

14- Your foil quill will draw your text.

15- As you can see the text is now transferred on to the card with foil.

16- The different types of fill effect in the sketch tool create great looks for your text. To totally fill the text, decrease the spacing on the effect so it fills the text.

Thanks again, @Kalie! I’m adding this to my weekend to-do list.

Thanks so much for this. I’ve had my foil quill for months but hesitant on using it. This gives me the courage :wink:
