Personally, I prefer using Detail powder whenever I emboss -- it just seems to produce clearer images, especially on words. Sometimes it doesn't seem to cover as well on large, solid-type images, though. What I've learned to do is to really put a *lot* of EP on those big images and let it sit a bit before tapping the excess off. You can always add more powder and re-heat, if necessary, too. The only drawback to detail powder is that it doesn't come in all the nifty colors that regular EP does. Also, be sure to use a good embossing ink for the best 'hold' on any kind of powder -- in my experience, VersaMark is the best! Hope this helps.

Happy trails....

Sue

Detail powder is a finer grain, so the lines will be more clear- like Sue mentioned. It can make a thinner line where the other can't.

Thanks for the help. That is what I thought. I need gold so I will get the detail ep.

Happy stampin,
Beth
