    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Karen wants to know: "Is there such a thing as matte embossing powder?"
    A: Wow! has a clear matte powder. Distress embossing powders are designed to have a more matte and textured finish. Check out Emerald Creek for some really interesting special effect and blended powders, especially the Baked Velvet and Baked Texture lines. I was playing with some layered powders last night on a paper bead, and found that the oils from my fingers dulled the finish just with a little handling (I wanted that effect, so that was good!). Not sure if that works with all powders, but it did with the Ultrathick Embossing Enamel. Overheating regular powders can dull them as well, if you want to experiment with what you already have.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Ruthi had a fun idea for the Candy Flower Garden tutorial: "My friend and I made 24 of these. We hooked two together back to back. We now have 12 double-sided decorations for centerpieces. Thank you so much for the cute idea. They will be used for our retired teacher luncheon group.
