Default question about Pearl-Ex

I am trying to do a shimmery dragon fly (Measure of Life) (this is going to take some practice!)...but am wondering about the Poppin Pearls instructions. First off, why do you not use an embossing buddy in this tutorial?

Second, if I want to add Dazzling Diamond Glitter on top of the Pearl Ex, (still with the Poppin Pearls tutorial here), I should apply heat to make the glitter stick, right? So, do I still have to spray with acrylic?

Denise, Thanks!

Hmmm I'm not really sure why you wouldn't use an embossing buddy but it's probably just because it's not necessary? I'm not 100% clear on your second question. Dazzling diamonds has embossing powder mixed with the glitter. If you just heat the glitter on versamark it won't stick. Perhaps if you mixed some pearl ex in with the dazzling diamonds you would come up with the effect you are looking for.
