Embossed Metal and Alcohol Ink Tutorial

Hi friends,

This is an old post but due to the popularity, I wanted to repost it here.

The video is about how to emboss metal sticky foil and paint it with alcohol inks, hope you enjoy it!

For those of you don't know how to use embossing folders, I have a photo tutorial at the bottom of this post.

In this case, I finished the piece by covering it with black paint and wipping out almost all to just let some darker spots.

Other examples using the same technique with another embossing folder.

Black paint added

No gesso

How to use embossing folders

First you'll need an Embossing/Die Machine like Sizzix - Texture Boutique Embossing Machine Only, Sizzix - Big Shot, Spellbinders - Grand Calibur (any will work).

You'll also need an embossing folder . The ones I used here are Embossing Folders - Bingo and Patchwork Set , Embossing Folders - Numbers and Letters and Checkerboard and Cracked Set but there are TONS of designs.

Insert you paper into the embossing folder

Run it through your machine (follow the instructions of your specific device).

You're done!
