Artistry in Painting with Powder

The Glance and PenPattern Turtle by Fran Seiford

It’s pretty exciting to see how embossing powder can be used beyond the basics and even more exciting is that these techniques have been compiled into a book by Fran Seiford for easy access to reference when using any of our line of Essentials.

Our 5-Jar Kits are great starter kits and the 14-Jar Scenic Selection Embossing Powder Set is as well. You can even pick and choose your color favorites by individual jars in clear, opaque, sparkly and the satiny shine of our PearLustre powders for your own creative favorites. There is plenty to fill your powdery needs.


If you are just getting started or a veteran with embossing powders, you will enjoy our Painting with Powder videos that encourage a little more random sprinkles and embossed layers than the basics.

In no time, you’ll be adding more Essentials to your new embossing talents with Mica Fragments, Color Fragments, Glass Glitter, and more!

Ready for some inspiration on techniques from Fran’s book? Let’s hop on over to the design team blogs sharing their embossing powder projects today.

  1. Say it isn’t so! This fun week of exploring embossing techniques can’t be over already! The designers have inspired me to try a few different embossing techniques this week and I am looking forward to continuing my embossing journey with your fabulous products!!! Fran is the Embossing QUeen and I am so glad that she has written this book!!! See you next week for more fun and inspiration!!


  2. So many possibilities! Can’t wait to try out some of these techniques! When I started stamping, about 29 years ago (!), embossing is the technique that impressed me the most! It is still magic to see that embossing powder melt!


  3. I’ve been so impressed with all the projects this week and definitely curious about all the techniques used. I just have to try some of them. You have a talented group of designers and there isn’t anyone more knowledgeable about embossing 🙂 than Fran. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing all your ideas. I am inspired!!


  4. Sounds like an entertaining book – so many things to learn and keep me busy.
    Can’t wait to get my copy.
    The DT did an excellent job of teasing us with projects and suggestions.
