Today I thought I would share my favorite technique coloring & covering chipboard, using embossing powders.
Here are two techniques with to totally different looks. The first has two colors and only one layer of embossing powder. The second has one color and three layers of embossing powder. I would like to caution you, the embossing powders can get very hot and burn, please be very careful when trying this at home!
I love these hearts from GYPSY SOUL LASER CUTS!!! But it needs a little color!
On the first GYPSY SOUL LASER CUTS heart I pressed it into a VersaMark Pad, then I sprinkled RUBY RED embossing powder on sections of the heart. Then with a heat gun melted the red embossing powder.
Once I let the RUBY RED embossing powder cool for a minute, I then sprinkled PIRATES GOLD embossing powder over it and melted the pirates gold embossing powder.
Next I did what I call enameling chipboard. This time I used DELICATA Ink to cover the GYPSY SOUL LASER CUTS heart. I then covered it with PIRATES GOLD embossing powder over it and melted the pirates gold embossing powder. I repeated this two more times.... remember the embossing powder gets very hot!!!
Here you can see the difference between the first heart with just one layer and the second heart with three layers of embossing powder.
I hope this has inspired you to emboss your chipboard!!!
