As most of you know I am a huge fan of Tim Holtz products.

Whenever he launches a new range I just have to have one

of each. I have one colour missing but will get it as soon as

the suppliers have more in stock

To start my little experiment I gathered the following supplies:

Tattered Rose Distress Embossing Glaze, Tattered Rose

Distress Ink and Tattered Rose Oxide, Heat gun, white

cardstock and some clear embossing ink

Apply some clear embossing ink to a third of the cardstock.

Make sure you cover the area well

Sprinkle over a good amount of embossing glaze and gently

tape off the excess glaze and carefully return to the pot

Heat the glaze with a heat gun until all the glaze has melted.

Allow to cool before touching. So you are thinking to yourself

its just like regular embossing powder what is the big fuss

about WELL this stuff is translucent which adds a whole new

dimension to your mixed media projects!

Add some tattered rose distress ink to a third of the white

cardstock. I applied the colour directly from the ink pad and

just below the first colour band.

Sprinkle on some tattered rose embossing glaze. Tap off the

excess powder and return it to the jar.

Melt the glaze with a heat gun and just look at that! it has

enhanced the colour of the distress ink.

Now apply some tattered rose distress oxide to the last bit

of the cardstock. Apply it directly from the ink pad

Sprinkle on some tattered rose embossing glaze. Tap off the

excess powder and return it to the jar.

Melt the glaze with a heat gun and again WOW!

I will be using the glazes ALOT more often in my projects.

Remember you do not have to colour co-ordinate the glazes.

Mix it up try fossilized amber glaze over broken china

distress oxide and see what happens. Remember the glaze is

translucent

And if you were still in two minds about adding this product

to your stash! then check this out. I inked the entire background

with Fired Brick Distress Oxide and then heat set it. I stamped

with Jet Black archival ink and heat set it

Apply some clear embossing ink to the entire surface.

Sprinkle on some fired brick embossing glaze. Tap off the

excess and return to the jar.

Melt the glaze using a heat gun and look at that! The stamped

image can still be seen. I will be spending some more time

experimenting with the glazes and will definately be adding

them to my next mixed media project.
