Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Erin asks: "Have you tried heat embossing on wood?"
A: I have! Look for a tutorial coming in a few months. There are several options, depending on the effect you want. I like to stain the wood with ink or watered down craft paint, and then stamp and emboss decorative images with clear powder with the paint is dry. After that step, you can add more ink or paint over the embossing. The embossing powder will resist the additional layers. You can also sand away the embossing for a batik effect, or you can add a metallic rub-on to the raised areas to highlight them more.
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Lorna has a tip for the Glitter Highlighted Embossing technique: "I did something similar to this. I stamped my image in VersaMark and then I heat embossed the image with a glittery embossing powder. I then used a sponge dauber and colored over my image and fussy cut it out. It turned out very pretty and sparkly and the glitter seems to stay in place."
