The World’s Greatest Embossing Powder can be used to embellish your next project. Each color has a beautiful, glossy finish and can be used on bold, contrasting colored cardstock for dramatic effects. Clear High Gloss is primarily used with a colored pigment ink to add a high gloss embossed finish. Or for a more subtle finish, Clear High Gloss can be used with a clear embossing ink for a watermark effect. Directions: Ink your rubber stamp well using embossing ink or pigment ink. Pour embossing powder over ink to completely cover the image. Once the image is completely covered, tap off the excess powder. Return the excess powder to bottle for the next project. Heat image with crafting heat tool (a hair-dryer will not work, a commercial grade heat gun will also not work, it will burn your project) Please use a safe crafting heat tool to set your embossing powder. Let project cool and you are done! If you are having problems with the powder sticking to the ink, you might be using the wrong ink. Make sure to use a slow-drying embossing ink that will not dry too quickly. Enjoy!
