Gilding Flakes using Judi-Kins Embossing Powder

Hello again, and I hope you are all having a relaxing Sunday afternoon. We've just been blackberrying and I thought I would tell you about a product which I purchased over a year ago and have just got round to using!!!

Maybe some off you are already aware of this product but for those of you who are not its called Judy-Kins  Embossing Powder  Sticky Stuff EP260, and its an embossing powder that stays sticky after its been heated. So then you can apply gilding flakes, glitter, foil and probably many other things too.

I like using gilding flakes but there have been several occasions where I have just wanted a small addition and not wanted to use the double sided adhesive clear sheets, or wanted a stamped image in the gilding flakes.

So this is where this embossing powder comes in, you stamp the image as normal using versa mark or the make of clear ink that you have, and then sprinkle the Judi-Kins over the image as you would with any other embossing powder, and then shake off the excess.

The grains of powder are slightly more course than the every day embossing powders, but nowhere near as thick as UTEE.

When heating the stamped image with your heat gun take care as this powder melts much quicker, so be prepared to move the heat gun onto the next part of the image sooner than you would be used to.

Then cover the embossed image with gilding flakes and push then onto the card stock to make sure they adhere as you would do normally.

Next rub the excess off in the normal way using a course sponge or whatever your preferred method is.

And there you have it, a stamped image coated in gilding flakes.

I hope this has been of help to some of you, and if anyone has used this product and has any tips or other suggestions please leave a comment at the bottom of the page.

Thank-You for popping by and reading todays entry, I am just finding my way around the site at the moment so hopefully I will be adding new bits and pieces as I get to grips with it all. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. Bye for now Jane x
