With that simple definition, you might already be a mixed media artist, and not even know it! This technique intentionally mixes embossing paste with embossing powder to create a unique mashup for ultra-texture results!

steps to use embossing paste with embossing powder wrap
- Apply embossing paste to the project surface. Use a stencil if desired.
- Apply embossing powder to wet embossing paste. Either wait for the paste to dry with the powder embedded, or heat & dry immediately with a heat tool.
- To apply embossing powder after the paste is dry, apply anti-static powder, embossing ink and embossing powder as normal. Heat to melt.
- Explore with unique color combos, and stencils. Try applying the stencil over a swipe of embossing paste for a more random look.
