Okay, so after doing a lot of research on an extremely slow computer (the 45+ mph winds we were having were making things pretty slow), and then losing everything I typed once already.....this is what I have found on BASIC heat embossing:
You will need:
A heat tool
versamark ink (or similar)
a static removal cloth (optional)
a tray or paper to catch the loose powder
What you do:
-Rub your paper with the static removal cloth if you have one, if not you can skip this step.
-Stamp your image using the versamark (or similar) ink.
-Pour some embossing powder onto your stamped image.
-Tap off excess powder into a tray or onto a paper - then transfer back into original container.
-Using your heat tool (holding far enough away that you don't burn your paper), heat your stamped/powdered image until it is completely melted. Be careful not to over heat or you will lose the shine in your embossing powder.
Doesn't sound too hard! Now for all the other powders, beads, glitters, etc. - I will have to do more research on those. I will post more info as I find it (unless someone else gets to it first).
Here is a video on basic heat embossing. She does it both with the versamark type ink and a pigment ink.
