Embossing teknikker og hvordan lage egen embossing folder

 I dag kommer det et litt annerledes blogg innlegg fra meg. Det er en ren
 teknikk artikkel som jeg laget for StampARTic.

.Embossing and debossing are the processes of creating either raised or recessed relief images and designs in paper  and other materials. An embossed pattern is raised against the background, while a debossed pattern is sunken into the surface of the material.

Heat Embossing

You can use any stamp, although it’s easier to get a clean embossed image using a stamp with bold, clear lines. What you need: paper, stamp, embossing powder, ink pad and heat gun.

You can emboss on pretty much any kind of paper: Cardstock, patterned paper, glossy paper or specialty paper. The heavier the paper weight, the less likely the paper will curl up when heated. Vellum can be embossed; as with lighter papers, you’ll want to place it between some books to flatten it out after embossing.

A juicy ink pad

You need the embossing powder to stick to the inked image before heating it, so you’ll want an ink pad that dries slowly. If you stamp with a colored ink, your embossed image will still be the color of your embossing powder—not the color of the ink you used. Using different color inks can enhance the color of an embossed.

  1. Ink the stamp with your embossing ink pad and stamp on your paper.
  2. Immediately pour embossing powder on the image. Make sure you cover the entire image.
  3. Shake the excess powder onto a piece of scrap paper. I usually tap the edge of the paper against the table to make sure I’ve removed any stray powder. A small dry paintbrush or cotton swab is perfect for removing stray powder too.
  4. Gently roll the scrap paper into a funnel and pour the embossing powder back into the bottle.
  5. Place the paper on your heat-resistant surface or hold it with tweezers so you don’t burn your fingers. I like to warm up my embossing gun for a minute before using it.
  6. Hold the embossing gun about 6” away from the image. Sweep the gun over the image, taking care not to direct it in one area for too long. You’ll see the change—as the embossing powder melts, it will become smooth and dimensional. Be careful not to overheat, otherwise the powder will bubble and the paper could burn.
  7. That’s it! You’re done. Now that you’ve mastered the basics, you can experiment with different papers, effects and techniques.
