How to Emboss

Embossing your stamped image will add an elegant, raised effect to your craft project.

1. Apply ink to the stamp. It is easier to dab downwards onto the stamp, rather than to press the stamp onto the inkpad.
2. Press the stamp firmly onto the paper.
3. Pour plenty of embossing powder over the stamped image. You should have a few minutes to work while the ink is still wet.
4. Pour the excess powder back into the pot (you actually use very little).
5. Apply heat using a heat gun (not a hairdryer, which will blow the powder off and is not hot enough). You will see the powder melt in just a few seconds. Switch off the heat gun and wait a few more seconds for the powder to be cool to the touch.
6. Voila! The gold powder has completely covered the ink colour underneath and you have a beautifully shiny, embossed finish!
