Create your own embossing powder colours

Hello to you all... It's Sarah here!

This month, our theme is Halloween so I thought I would show you how to create the perfect Halloween colour using Wow embossing powders... Once that you have created Halloween orange embossing powder, you will have the perfect colour to make anything Halloween inspired. I transformed a white favour bucket into a Halloween inspired mini treat bucket!


When melting the powders, I always add in a small amount of clear embossing powder to the mix as it helps the powders start melting quicker. Add the powders into a mini foil tray and heat underneath with a heat gun until the powders turn into a molten liquid. (Remember to hold the foil tray with pliers as it gets very hot)!

To create the Halloween orange colour I mixed the following powders:
Clear Embossing Powder
Sherbert Embossing Powder
Lemon Embossing Powder (use double the amount of this colour)




I have just ordered this mold to make some mini pumpkin earrings!

You can also layer colours to get different colours and effects...
I started with a layer of  Clear Embossing Powder and then added a layer of Lemon Embossing Powder then added a layer of  Sherbert Embossing Powder then a final layer of Lemon Embossing Powder to get the orange colour shown below. Between each colour, I let the embossed powder cool before inking with clear ink and adding another layer of colour.




With mixing colours, the possibilities are endless...

I mixed Apple Red Embossing Powder with Metallic Gold Rich Sparkle to create this wonderful red and gold sparkle colour to use on Christmas cards.





We would love to see what colours you create, why not share your colour creations on our Wow Embossing Powder facebook page or share with us the colour of embossing powder that you would like to see added to the range.

You can see all the colours available on The Wow Embossing Powder Website

Happy Embossing!
