Default question heat embossing on wood

I am just wondering if anyone has tried heat embossing on wood? I would love to try this and I just want to make sure i do it right.

I am making a tissue box cover for a family member for christmas my husband is building the tissue box cover himself and then we will paint/emboss/stamp it and just wondering if anyone has any tips?

I have a friend who mentioned using gesso first on it and then painting it and then stamping it and then embossing it if that makes sense? i am not entirely sure what paint to use. It will have a picture of a sheep well lots of them going across the long sides and on the ends ive got a stamp with about 4 sheep on it and would like to emboss all of them. it would be stamped in black or i could use black embossing powder

I would try all this on scrap wood first. likely to use either craft wood if my husband can find it or pine one of the two

It would be great to paint the bottom green and the top around the sheep blue like the grass and the sky and have the sheep white except in the big stamp where some are black!\

I hope this makes sense

if any one has a tutorial or information that would be so helpfuL!

There is a blog I follow where she does this frequently. I have done it on small wood pieces for earrings - here's that link, while I find the other:

thanks for the links - i think they are far more complicated than I could ever do at least for now. Any chance of very simple as in beginner instructions? I am trying to figure out if i need to use gesso (as suggested by a friend) first and then paint/stamp/emboss or whether i could just paint stamp and emboss? its quite expensive and i would hate to buy something i dont really need.

I noticed that they actually embossed first for the earrings but i wanted to do this last basically have an effect of paint stamped image then embossing whether or not the gesso is applied or not. I really appreciate your help and I cannot believe how fast the responses are so thank you

I just read your post more closely, and I think I can visualize your project a little better now. Also noticed you are quite new to us - welcome!

Gesso is like a primer, so if you're working on wood that is more absorbent and you think your paint would soak into it, you might want to prepare the surface with gesso first. It does give a good base for the paint to stick to and sit on. Acrylic paints or craft paints would work best for your scene.
