Default another embossing question

I understand that detail embossing powder is best for fine lines/details. Does it work just as well for 'less-detailed' stamps? In other words, do I need to have both detail and 'non-detail' embossing powder? Are there disadvantages to using the detailed powder in some cases?

thanks for the help....

I would say no to having two powders. I have just black detail and I use it for anything that's black. Works great!

no disadvantage to using detail EP on big areas. It costs a teeny bit more than regular EP, so maybe that is why some people have both on hand.

I don't have detail EP. It's more expensive and haven't got around to getting any. For detail images. I use pigment ink and emboss with clear EP. I eventually plan on getting detail EP but there are others higher on the list since this method suits my needs for now.
