STAMPENDOUS-Embossing Enamel Kit. A set of chunky vintage-inspired embossing powders that accept glitter and mica well and provide a thick layer of enamel to projects. For best results use a slow- drying ink and heat from the underside. This kit contains five colors of embossing enamels: Aged Silver (opaque); Shabby Blue (opaque); Shabby Pink (pastel); Shabby White (opaque); and Aged Gold (opaque). Total weight: 1.38 ounces (39g). Made in USA.
These powders do not stick at all to stamping ink. The particles are chunky and heavy and they fall off. They are unusable for embossing unless you're working with glue.
Here is how I have always been taught to emboss using embossing powders and I know no other way: I take a rubber stamp, ink it up with transparent ink, stamp the ink on my card or paper, sprinkle embossing powder on the stamped area, lift the paper and dumb the excess powder so that only the powder that stuck to the stamped design sticks, and blast it with a heat gun so that the powder melts into the paper in the shape of the stamped design.
The process is impossible if the powder doesn't stick to ink. These powders do not stick to ink, rendering them useless. These might have other crafting purposes and I suppose you could try embossing with glue - I have not tried and am afraid to do so because I don't want to ruin my stamps and it seems really messy and difficult, and I don't know how the glue would react to the heat gun - but calling this an embossing kit is completely misleading when it simply won't work with typical embossing techniques. I'm really disappointed.
