Embossing powders are finely ground plastics that melt when heated with a heat tool to create smooth and shiny effects. Use with embossing markers or ink pads to add “raised and glazed” lettering and designs to your artwork, cards, invitations, and more! Make your marks with an embossing marker (or stamps and embossing ink pad).
Generously sprinkle embossing powder over your marks as quickly as possible, to prevent the ink from becoming too dry.
Tilt your paper and let the excess powder slide off into a container to be used again later.
The slightly sticky ink will hold the powder on just your marks. Repeat this "powdering" process if there are parts of the mark that aren't fully covered.
Use a small, dry paintbrush to remove stray powder if any sticks to the paper around your marks.
Use a heat tool to melt the embossing powder, and now you’re finished!
Simple steps for basic embossing:
*Notes: Be careful not to heat the powder too long, or it may burn and become discolored. Also, hair dryers are not a recommended substitute for heat tools as they tend to blow too much air too fast and won't get hot enough to melt the powder. 1 oz. plastic jars. Made in the USA.
