    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: estamps asks: "Can I heat emboss on paper coated with matte medium?"
    A: You can! You'll just want to be sure that the panel is fully dry before you heat it so that the medium doesn't bubble up or warp. Preheat your heat gun before you emboss, and hold it away from the panel for best results.
