    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: skmrg asks: "Can you over heat embossing powder? Sometimes I have trouble knowing if I've heated it enough. The other day it looked like I had finished melting it but when I was painting around the stamped area some of the powder was rubbing off. Does that mean that I didn't heat it enough?"
    A: You can overheat the powder, and it will go dull and sort of soak into the paper. If there was powder rubbing off, then it probably wasn't heated long enough. Paper can make a difference though too - some papers that are more absorbent may take in the ink before the powder has a chance to stick.
