Various metals are used in today's embroideries - cut into shapes, strips or embossed. All our metals can be cut with scissors.
These are thin layers of metallic plastic fused to a sheet of cellophane. You can apply foil glue, fusible web, (eg Vliesofix) or a bonding powder, (eg Supermend), to your fabric, then iron the metallic foil to the adhesive. Many colours to choose from.
