fuse the foil to the toner.
I'd love to try this for those large "letters-in-boxes" drop cap letters
where the first letter in a quote or paragraph is much larger than the
others and is gilded. (Some are in decorative shapes.)
What I can't figure out is how to have only the letter part gilded. If I
put the foil over that part of the paper (the drop cap letter) and run it
through my laserjet printer will it automatically foil just the printed
part of that letter (I mean, that I wouldn't have to use a toothpick or
something to put it over the part myself but can just plunk a whole blob
of foil on it)???
Thank you VERYmuch!
