Caviar Beads - With Foil  

Ed Branigan, our Print Applications Manager, came up with this special effects look.  For this particular design, only one screen was used. 

•  Apply IC’s 3809 FX Clear using 110 mesh screen and 200 micron capillary film.

•  Add caviar beads by hand while the adhesive is wet. 

•  Cure at 330° F for 1 minute.

•  Apply silver foil on top of the caviar beads and quickly (1 second) apply the foil with a heat transfer machine.  Hot peel the foil and voila!

Here are the settings used on the heat transfer machine: 350 degrees F, 10 psi for 1 second
