What is Heat & Stick Powder?
It’s a powder that when heated becomes a glue to hold tight to fine, loose embellishments like Gilded Leafing, glitter, tiny beads and more. As with my embossing powders, I like to store it in a food storage container with a spoon for easy application.
It is a lot like our Embossing Powder…we sprinkle it onto images stamped in the sticky Versamark ink and heat it with our Heat Tool. Be careful to heat only until it just melts – too long and it dries out and is useless.
With the Gilded Leafing Embellishment, just cover the melted Heat & Stick powder with plenty of leafing. I’ve transferred mine into a food storage container and just dip the piece of cardstock in it. Use a brush to clear off excess. I’ve found that long, sweeping brushing is great for getting off large flakes, then I switch to circular, scrubbing motions to get everything off except what’s stuck in the powder. That’s it!
