Deep Embossing Necklace.

Deep Impression Triple embossing using UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel)
Ordinary Embossing powder does not work as good as UTEE, many layers would be needed. Meryle Holland - Watch part 1 and 2. I have found this lady is the cheapest source of UTEE, you get more for your money.
This video will give visual guidance. Glenda Waterworth
· Take a 2” square of mount board (ordinary card will buckle and bend), using a black marker pen cover it all over and on the edges to be black. Let it dry a few minutes.
· Using either Versamark or Perfect medium which are glue like inks, cover the 2” sq.
· Dip it into a container of UTEE, place onto a craft mat, melt it with your heat gun.
· When melted and still hot, drop back into the UTEE, tip, don’t tap the excess.
· Before melting prepare your stamp. Choose a patterned stamp, cover with Versamark or similar, put aside within easy reach.
· Return the 2” sq, again melt the UTEE. When melted drop back into the UTEE, tip don’t tap off excess, melt again, when it looks like it is a smooth molten square.
· Gently lower your prepared stamp down onto it, be sure your going down onto it like a
helicopter landing, or your more likely to slip at an angle. Keep it pressed down for a few
minutes it will release itself when it has cooled. If it is not to your pleasing you can again melt the UTEE, re ink your stamp to stamp again
· To add mica powders , dab the piece with the Versamark, sprinkle a tiny bit of chosen colours, brush on with small brush, gently pat onto a baby wipe to take off excess and provide the moisture to seal the powder.
. Punch a hole where desired, add a jewel finding and a chain to make a necklace. Or you can add your completed piece to a card.
