How to draw your first line with the foil quill in silhouette studio

Posted on 20th September 2019
*Silhouette Cameo 3 used. 


1- Open silhouette studio.


2- Using the shape tool draw a square.


3- Next select the path tool and draw a line. When you draw single cut lines, these can be used as a single draw line for the foil quill.


4- Go to the send screen, When using the foil quill you will need to change certain settings. Firstly change the media to the specific media you are using. I am using cardstock.


5- Next, you need to change the tool type. We will not be using a cut tool so we need to change the setting to the sketch pen as this is the closest item to the foil quill.


6- Next change the speed to 5, force to 4 and passes to 1. This will give you a really nice foiled effect. It is good to note that different models of silhouette machines may vary, so always check and test your settings before you create a full design.

Click send.


7- The machine will start to foil. make sure that the USB cord does not get caught up while the machine works.


8- You now have your foiled lines.
