dry embossing

I have alot of metal and plastic stencils that I haven't done much with, other than sponge dabbing. Aren't you supposed to also do dry embossing with them. Have you all been successful with this? Or do you mainly do paste embossing?

After posting this, I found this link - however, it requires using a gasket kit - it is possible that you can invent your own without special purchase of this kit.

Thumbs up

The short answer to your query, Susan? Yep! You can use stencils to do 'dry embossing.

Alas... My dial-up connection makes seeing videos a prob, but thanx for the link. That said, however, there are loads of ways to play with this technique without resorting to gaskets & such.

That said, however, here's a simple way to do a stencil 'dry-emboss':

1. Place a stencil on your work surface.

2. Cover the stencil with a piece of plain paper--copier, tablet, etc..

3. Run your fingers over the paper & apply enough pressure to let you 'see' the open areas.

4. Use a blunt tool to outline the areas tou want to emboss--my fave tools are wood or rubber.

Lots more options, but HTH

I have a light box which makes it easy to do the dry emobssing. If you don't have a lightbox, you can tape the stencil to the window, put the cardstock over it and emboss. If you don't have a stylus, the rounded end of a paintbrush works well.

dry embossing hint

A good hint I was given for dry embossing is to rub a piece of wax paper over the stencil and that makes it easier to glide the stylus in the stencil. A dry ballpoint pen can also be used as a stylus.

I also have a light table so that makes stencilling alot easier to set up.
