In this workshop you will learn how to use the Kwikprint hot foil stamping machine (available in the CBBAG bindery) to decorate spines and covers. The course will let students create and prepare labels as a way of adding very attractive elements to a book cover either cloth or leather. Different foils react differently on different substrates (paper, fabric and leather). Learning to apply the correct temperature, pressure and dwell time are the key to producing beautiful book spines and labels. Every student will have some time to practice on the Kwikprint. Students are welcome to bring their own samples for foil stamping.
