Default Can you heat emboss on wood? Sister making something and asked me -

My sister called me yesterday to ask me if you could heat emboss on wood. I was like um, not sure but I know you can stamp with acrylic paint if that helps and would be easier - she said great and was going to do the paint -

So can you - heat emboss on wood? I don't have any wood scraps around here handy to check (though I was eying the furniture around the house, seeing what I could do that wouldn't show, LOL) and figured someone would know -

I've never tried it but I can't imagine why it wouldn't work on unfinished wood. The EP may not stick to finished wood, though.

This is just my guess, I have no experience in embossing on wood. lol Hopefully someone else can give you a more definate answer.

Yes, you can. Some woods (pine comes to mind) will start to release sap when heated. Others will change color when warmed up by the heat tool.

If you have unfinished wood, you can color it with pigment inks, just like paint, let it dry or bake it then stamp and heat emboss. The wood takes longer than paper to get hot so be patient. An embossing buddy used first will make a big difference, too, as the texture traps stray powder bits.

Yes, it can be done. I'm using wooden stir sticks on my advent calendar. I used heat embossing on some of them:

Don't know if it makes a difference, but I colored the wood with distress ink first.

I made a bunch of picture frames one year for Christmas presents with embossing on them...they turned out great! (If I do say so myself...) Use an embossing buddy first, and then keep an eye on the wood as you're heating so you don't scorch it or cause any finish to bubble.

I have done it on Stampin' Up's new Wood Cuts sheets for the Big Shot. Looks so cool!

If it's painted, just make sure you don't "burn" the paint. (done this before) Work carefully and have fun!

This is a timely thread. I am thinking about doing a picture frame and stamped picture with my Stampin' Lunch Bunch in February. However, I want them to stamp directly onto the wood without painting it. How do I prep the wood for this type of decorating? I know if you don't do something the ink will bleed. Thanks!

Brilliance ink doesn't bleed on wood. I've used it quite often, it never bleeds.

Do you need to heat set it? AND can you color with SU markers on the wood inside the Brilliance inks?

You don't have to heat set it.
I've never tried SU markers on wood, don't know if it would react with the Brilliance ink. Maybe somebody else knows?

Uh, it "shouldn't," lol? Theoretically, since Brilliance is a pigment ink, the SU markers won't cause it to bleed. Just not positive about whether it will or not on wood. Probably best just to test on scrap pieces.
