Foiling or Hotfoil is a lamination process used in creating richly layers prints.

Erik Waterkotte is Saltgrass Printmakers Fall 2019 Artist-In-Residence. Erik will be teaching a two day workshop September 28 & 29,2019. Erik is an Assistant Professor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Charlotte, NC. Foiling or Hotfoil is a lamination process that uses thin sheets of specialty foil and a heat-activated adhesive (copy toner or gloss acrylic medium are common adhesives in this process).  The adhesive is printed and dried and the foil attached via heat and pressure.  In this workshop attendees will learn how to effectively apply foil via screen printing as well as experiment with the foiling process via mixed-media.  Attendees will create original images during the workshop and are also welcome to bring already created prints/proofs to add foil to.
