    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Mary asked: I have just read both the Acrylic Resist Tutorial (watched the video too) and Burned Batik Tutorial. Just looking at the pictures they look rather similar. Are they? What is the difference in real life and which is easier? What other comparisons can you make? Thanks. I love your video tutorials.
    A: All resist tutorials are a bit similar. The burned batik technique gives you a slightly softer look. Once you overheat the embossing powder, the embossed images have a softer look than, let's say, regular embossed images or white acrylic images which have been sponged over.

    I would say the acrylic resist is faster. It takes a while to overheat embossing powder for the burned batik technique. But - cleaning up acrylic pait is more work then cleaning a stamp that was inked with embossing ink. They both have advantages - so it's really up to you!
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Cathi has a suggestion for the rolled flower tutorial: "I do not cut my ribbon until after the flower is done, so as not to waste any. I do that when ever I use ribbon and I never have useless scraps...(as if a scrap could ever be useless..LOL)
