Tap off excess powder

Heat Embossing Technique

Heat with Heat Tool until all powder is melted and shiny.  Hold up to check in the light if all areas are shiny.  If there is any powder not heated it will fall off when you touch it.  A hair dryer will not work to heat set, it will blow the powder off!
