Things to note:

  • Embossing powders can be used on any surface that can “take the heat”.
  • Glue N Seal is THE BEST adhesive for gluing paper to any surface.
  • Use archival inks to stamp OVER embossing powder & heat to make permanent.
  • Distress Spray Stains make it super easy & FAST to ink bare wood.
