All About Embossing

All About Embossing


We love to help you get a ton of creative mileage out of the things you already own and this course is all about taking some traditional crafting things most of us have – embossing powders and embossing folders – and using them to create mixed media magic!

In part one, we’ll start with an overview and five technique ideas from Riikka, the perfect class for beginners to help you get to grips with what your powders can do. We’ll go on to explore lots of techniques including DIY powders; faux resin paper; bespoke powder mixes; embossing 3D surfaces; stamping into embossing powder; image transfers with embossing powder and more! Then in part two we’ll take out our embossing folders to create fabulous foiled effects; woodgrain that looks totally real; amazing textured skins; metallic accents; the perfect patina, plus learn clever ways to fake the embossed look. This course is literally packed with inspirational ideas to get you looking at embossing supplies in a whole new way!

This course contains 12 lessons: 9 video tutorials (total running time 3 hrs 20 mins) and 3 step-by-step photo tutorials. Your purchase includes lifetime access and downloadable content for each lesson.
