Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
I have some more gilding and embossing from our
During our Zoom session, Julia pointed out that her pieces felt sticky.
Mine did too. So I had the brilliant idea to put embossing powder over it and heat
emboss. It got rid of the sticky, but also covered up a lot of the variegation in the
gilding flakes. It was usable though and made a lovely Christmas card.
Here's a sample of what the piece looked like before gold embossing powder.
This time I used clear embossing powder. It left the variegation in color and got rid
of the stickiness.
Have you tried this technique yet?
