What colour is the one you turn to the most often?

Found in a local bookshop they have inkadinkado embossing powder for half price, red green, gold and silver.

Wondering what I might do with it if I decide to get it. Would like to teach with it in my classes.

Do you use it for anything different? I don't tend to use it as much as I used to, because I am lazy lol. Used to use it a lot on cards, but this is a scrapping class......

Silver is my go to color.

I've been working on a scrap jazz article tonight and found you can emboss glass and plastic quite nicely. Of course, that won't help for a scrapping class! What about embossing a background pattern or the title? I've done both.

Clear (fine & UTEE)! I have tons of the "colors" and second I would group the gold/copper & black. But the clear is easiest - because you can use any color of the Ranger Distress Inks (they work as an emboss ink also), so whatever color you stamp comes through the clear powder. (Saves having to buy so many colors - though that still hasn't stopped me!)

And oh yes. . . on chipboard, on clear acetate, on cardstock, on metal, on Jolees embellies (recently I had a set of silver and I needed gold so I just embossed gold over it), on flowers (either dipping them in a melting pot or just stamping/embossing over). . . almost anything - you just need to watch the heat so you don't burn or melt what ever you're embossing on, and watch the metal - it stays hot a while after you've melted the powder so make sure it's cool before you touch it. Here are a few from my gallery that might give you some ideas. . .

You should get them. I will have a few articles coming up showing you what you can do with them!

Definitely clear for me. I also love that any stray little bits don't show up!

I use clear, white, and iridescent clear the most.

I don't use them often, but mostly Black, white, silver and gold. I often wish I had other color....

I actually have a good range of colour for myself.......I agree the clear is the most used.....or the pewter one and antique gold one.

I love the UTEE from the girls at pipedreamink. The colours are amazing as well.

But this is for a teaching setting, so I need to keep,costs down. I often mix the colours togther to make awesome marbled designs, but its quite costly for a big group. ......

Was just interested to see what you all use it for......so thanks for the feedback.

I suppose the thing that worries me is the colours are quite "brassy" looking. The red and green are very very bright too.....I don't often do bright garish colours........

One of the first colours I got was called Verdigris. It is green, with specks of gold, brown, white, black, copper and I don't know what else in it. That gave me the idea for mixing the colours. I tried black and white once but the white was "off" and didn't melt. Black and silver together is dramatic. If you're quick, you can use a cocktail stick to make patterns through it while it is still hot. It looks like those iced biscuits, or latte art.

I mostly use metallics; gold, silver and copper. I've transformed ugly chipboard letters to gold with embossing powder, and I've "made" gold and silver buckles for Father Christmas's belt. Admittedly that was for a card but there's no reason why it couldn't be for a LO. Oh and I had a pack of balloon brads whose colour went funny (rust?) and I embossed those silver and gold.

Yes....colouring brads is a great idea.....I was given some very ugly brads a while back that were what we would call calf poop yellow.......they looked great after I dipped them in embossing powder....
