Wet Embossing

By:

Wet embossing is similar to stamping, and the result is a textured design that functions as a great craft embellishment. Check out our quick and easy tutorial.


Wet Embossing
 

Materials

  • Rubberstamp: Any rubberstamp will do, but extremely detailed or etched stamps don’t emboss well.
  • Pigment Ink or Embossing Ink: This is a slow drying ink that will hold embossing powder until you are ready to heat it with a heat gun.
  • Embossing Powder: Looks like glitter, but this is a special powder that will melt and rise when heated
  • Heat Gun: Gently blows very hot air that will melt embossing powder. Be careful not to touch any metal tips of heat guns.
  • Paper: Almost any type of paper is a good surface to wet emboss upon even vellum.
  • Paper Plate: Or other tool to catch excess power.

Step by Step

  1. Tap stamp on the embossing pad or on pigment ink. Make sure entire surface of the stamp is covered with the ink.
     
  2. Stamp image onto surface and immediately cover with embossing powder. Tap off excess onto a scrap piece of paper or paper plate and pour back into the powder container.
     
  3. Use your heat source to melt the embossing powder. The heat tool is used from the top of the design. All other heat sources will be placed under the surface. Thick surfaces will be difficult to emboss without a heat tool.
     
  4. The powder will go from a dull finish to a very glossy one signaling you that your embossing is done.
     
  5. You can overheat the embossing. If your embossed image is cracking use less time to heat. If your embossing is uneven or still powdery you need to apply more heat to melt.


Debossing

If you melt a puddle of embossing powder and stamp an image into it, it is called debossing. You don’t have to stamp the melted embossing powder to create some fun. Try adding embellishments to the mix! Remember that melted embossing powder is hot enough to burn skin until it cools off completely.
