What is embossing powder?

Embossing powder gives your DIY project a luxurious look by creating a mostly shiny 3D texture on your stamp impression. This technique is also called heat embossing. Embossing powder can be used on various substrates such as paper or wood.

Clear powders are available in a gloss (shiny), semi dull (medium matte) and matt dull (very matte) finish. These clear powders let the colour of the background shine through completely. So they are also useful when working with a coloured pigment ink.

Explanation codes of WOW! Embossing powder

  • Regular (R) Standard - The R stands for the standard grain size. These grains are great for heat embossing.
  • Superfine (SF) Superfine - This powder has a very fine grain, especially for embossing details. The embossing does become less thick with this powder.
  • Ultra High (UH) Ultra High - This powder is very coarse. Especially for embossing large areas or multiple layers on top of each other for an extra thick result. This powder is also suitable for crackle.
  • Mixed Particle Size (X) - mix of the above types and applications.
  • Braille (B) - This powder gives exactly the right height for Braille.
Translucent powders

  • Translucent (T) Translucent - These powders are translucent. The substrate is partly visible and may affect the colour. 
  • Opaque (O) Opaque - These powders are opaque. As a result, the substrate is not visible and does not affect the colour.
  • Marbling (M) Marbling - these powders have a white base mixed other colours for a marble effect. Especially for melting and casting embossing powder.

How do I make my paper less static?

You know the drill, glitter that sticks everywhere. This is because your paper is static. With the Anti static tool from Nellie's Choice, this is a thing of the past.
This antistatic powder pouch you use before starting heat-embossed, to prevent embossing powder from sticking anywhere on your surface. Use the pouch along foam tape/strips or other sticky surfaces to get rid of stickiness, for example the side of your shaker card, where otherwise the sequins will stick.
For plastic film bags, this tool is also ideal.

Can I emboss with WOW Sparkles?

Note! No you cannot emboss with WOW Sparkles.
Use WOW Sparkles on double-sided adhesive foil or in transparent drying glue.
When WOW Sparkles are mixed with a WOW embossing powder, embossing is possible.
