Today's project features a variation of a "faux ceramic tile" technique--instead of using dies, I used stamps!
In the video I talk about "coarse" grind clear embossing powder. Basically, it is a "chunky" embossing powder that, when melted, creates a very thick, glossy effect. Although I used the brand name UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) because I happened to have quite a bit on hand (by Ranger, but since discontinued), WOW! Embossing Powder's Clear Ultra-High performs in exactly the same way.
You can try a regular grind clear embossing powder, however you will probably need to repeat the layers a few more times to build up the thickness you can achieve by using a coarse grind powder.
By happy accident, a few flakes of the coarse grind gold powder blew off the edges and into the clear when I was finishing the piece; since I found the result enchanting, I deliberately added a little more, as you see in the video. Due to the thick layers of clear powder beneath, they look like confetti or tiny gold nuggets suspended in the faux ceramic tile surface. Love that. :)
