Episode Summary

My guess is that you have sent, received or touched a holiday card, greeting card, business card or something else that imprints foil in its design. Foil is that shiny accent that beckons your attention. Its allure is intoxicating. Foil’s allure is exactly what attracted Virginia Myers to exploring its application possibilities as a fine art form. As a curious, art student, Virginia worked tirelessly to pioneer how to create fine art with foil.

All I can say is get ready to be seduced.moreless
