Thread: best ink for heat embossing

  1. best ink for heat embossing

    what is the best brand of black ink and what type of ink do i use for clear embossing with heat gun? thanks

  2. Re: best ink for heat embossing

    I find that VERSAFINE Onyx Black Archival instant dry pigment ink is the best black ink to use when using clear embossing powder to emboss. Versafine is just that, i.e. versatile and very fine so you get a detailed stamped image and once embossed you also don't lose the details with gunky or heavily inked images as some pigment inks do.

    You definitely want to use a pigment ink when you'll emboss. Versafine brand is my favorite pigment ink to use for embossing.

    I use the Versafine ink with clear ep as well, but I only learned that from the talented ladies here! I always used the coloured ep and was never happy with the lack of crispness.

    If it's "instant dry" wouldn't it not work w/embossing powder??

    I use VersaMARK and then use black embossing powder .. or whatever color I want . Good luck.

    you can use versafine to emboss?? it dries so fast...how do you get the powder to stick?

    i only use clear powder to emboss. i use stampin up black craft ink if i'm just embossing black. otherwise i use versamark and whatever color of ink i want, then clear powder. i stamp in versamark first, then in the color. it is great.

    It absolutely does work with embossing powder. It isn't "instant dry" like a dye ink is. It IS a pigment ink that will indeed dry quickly but not so fast that you can't apply the embossing powder. It truly is the best pigment ink for really crisp images. I especially enjoy using Versafine and clear embossing powder if I'm watercoloring. There is no bleeding of the color.

    If I'm using a colored embossing powder I use versamark.
