EMBOSSING POWDER 

ep-with-spill.jpg

Our embossing powder is unique in that it is two-toned embossing powder. Vibrant embossing powders with a unique secondary shimmer as you move your projects.  Gives your creation amazing movement!

  • Lindy's embossing powders are two-toned, (base color with secondary shimmer)
  • High quality, super fine embossing powder with vibrant colors and superb shimmer
  • Add to wet ink, heat it and wat it create a whole new dimension, (can be used on anything wet, not just ink)

 Not your typical Embossing Powder!  Lindy's embossing powder starts with high quality, fine grained 

drink-me-silly.jpgembossing powder that is then "colorized" to create a spectacular shimmery embossing powder.   We call our embossing powders two-toned because when you  look straight on the melted powder you see one color, and when you move your project, you see another shimmery color.

 

Standard Embossing is one of the easiest and best ways of utilizing the beauty of Lindy's embossing powder.  Stamp with Versamark watermark ink, (or any embossing ink), pour on one or more of the EP powders & heat with an embossing gun.  Wipe away excess with an electrostatic cloth and VOILA!

 Another technique with stunning results is to sprinkle embossing powder on any "wet" surface, including one that has been sprayed with our sprays, and heat where there is embossing powder, as you would with standard embossing to create amazing texture for backgrounds and mixed media projects.  

 Or place a small mound of EP on surface, (like a tag), heat from below to melt.  While this is hot, push a rubber stamp into the melted EP. Let cool and remove the stamp!  This is how we create our color swatches for you to see more dazzle of our EP.  You can also spray over the melted area instead of stamping and reheat to "evaporate" the spray.  This creates etched spots where the spray was for "cheetah" like texture.

 Lindy's embossing powder is sold in 1/2oz jars. They can be purchased individually or in sets of 5 that coordinate with our spray sets.

 

Tips, Tricks & Info

FILLING YOUR BOTTLE FOR THE FIRST TIME:
1.  Remove sprayer & tap out any extra powder in tube

2.  Fill to fill line, (on label), with warm water.  Stir.

3.  LET SIT AT LEAST 10 MINUTES TO LET EVERYTHING DISSOLVE OR YOU WILL GET CLOGGING!

4.  Replace sprayer. Stir, swirl, shake & spray to your heart’s content.

TIPS: Quick, rapid pushing on the sprayer will give more of a fine mist.  Slower, more firm pushing on the sprayer will give more splatters and texture.  Our sprayers are not just another boring fine mist sprayer, they were chosen by Lindy to have a little “splatter” when they sprayed because she loved texture! So experiment and see what great things you can create. (If you need the even coverage of a fine mist sprayer, we recommend you either over spray and wipe away the excess with a paper towel.)

THE BASICS
When filling your Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starbursts, Moon Shadows or Glitz Spritzes, make sure you use warm water, (not too hot). We recommend filtered water, if you have it, though tap water will work fine, (if you know your water is full of minerals or chemicals, we would highly recommend using filtered water just to make sure it doesn’t react with the colors). Make sure to fill your bottle to the top of the label, shake & let sit for at least 10 minutes. Then you are ready to go!

DAUBER CAPS
It’s best to use FILTERED water with the stains to make sure the daubers stay unclogged and issue free! For either the Old Hairy or Old Baldy.

EMBOSSING POWDERS
Our embossing powders have the addition of micas that sometimes like to “halo” on the paper. A few tricks to help prevent this:

  • 1. Make sure the card stock/paper you use has a flat coating, (rather than the more fibrous finish).
  • 2. Wipe your surface with a dryer sheet (bounce, etc) before stamping.
  • 3. Use a dusting cloth (like swifter) after you emboss & the embossing powder has cooled
  • All of our base embossing powder is from Ranger, Inc so we are at the mercy of their formula. Their darker colored embossing powder has gotten finer over the years, which has added to the “halo” effect, especially on lighter colored card stock/paper.
