Default Inking embossing folders

i saw something somewhere about using ink on an embossing folder to show the detail of the embossing. I've looked through all my magazines, no luck. Can anyone here help me? Thanks for looking.

Hope those tutorials are helpful - the letterpress one is probably the "classic" way of combining inking and a folder.

I've found a brayer is handy for getting a good, even spread on ink on the folder when you're going to run it through your die cutter (as in the second and third tutorials linked above).

Thank you! The faux patina is exactly what I was looking for, but the others will be used as well. I'd have never found these on my own. Thanks again and have a nice day!

Glad you found what you needed.


You can find these and many more right here on SCS. Top of the page. You can see "Home Gallery Forum Tutorials" etc... Click Tutorials and there are instructions for many techniques. There is a search available to look up anything. Give it a try!

Have fun creating. Hope you will show us what you made!

Is a brayer best for inking up embossing folders? I'm just wondering if it's worth buying one.

I found it quite hard to avoid lines from the edge of the pad, no matter how much gentle tapping all over I did. Using a brayer gave me easy overall coverage with no harsh lines. It's not my most-used tool but I've found my brayer useful since taking the plunge and wouldn't be without it now (I got a Speedball one but I see lots so Ranger ones in use and they look fine, too).
