How to Use Text With the Foil Quill in Silhouette Studio

*Silhouette Cameo 3 used.

1- Open Silhouette Studio. Click on the Text icon.

2- Type your text.

3- When you type text, the red lines are the cut lines. When you use the foil quill, the quill will follow the cut lines. This means that your text will have an outline but not be filled inside.

4- You can find fonts that are single line fonts. These will not leave an outline but act like the text has been handwritten with a pen. I am using theDear Agatha fontfrom fontbundles.net.

5- You can also use effects and 3D fonts with the foil quill. Again, the inside will not be filled, but the effect of 3D or shadow will be foiled as per the cut lines.

6- When it is time to foil, click Send. Set your design to the media you are using. I am using cardstock. Make sure Sketch is selected. Next, change the speed to 5, the force to 4, and passes to 1. Click Send.

7- While the foil quill is working, you can see the foil quill drawing where the cut lines would be.

8- You can see where the foil quill drew onto the foil.

9- Once the foil is removed, you can see how the fonts differ depending on if it's is a single line font or a regular font.
