Technique glossy accentsThrough out the year I will be posting a few mini tutorials teaching you some basic techniques and today we are following on from the beginners guide to heat embossing.
first of all you need to stamp out your image using pigment ink or watermark ink. The Artiste watermark ink is like the versa mark in from Wow embossing and I like to use this type of ink because it is sticky and holds the powder well.
cover it over with clear embossing powder
tap off the excess and then heat with your heat tool, it is always a good idea to have a tray as you don't waste as much powder and these aren't cheap.
rub the image over with a watermark ink pad and coat in clear embossing ink before heating it up. repeat until you have a thick glossy coating.
