Embossing Enamel Chipboard Technique with Infinity Engraving LLC

Hello and welcome! Todays technique is not new, but really quite fun and versatile.  It's an easy way to add texture and dimension to chipboard and cardstock.  I used Ultra Think Embossing Enamel for this project, which comes in black and clear, but you can use any embossing powder with this technique.  The difference between embossing powder and embossing enamel is the size of the grains; UTEE is just bigger granules where powders are a much finer mill.  You do need to use a sticky ink, as the bigger granules will fly off the project if the ink isn't sticky enough.  Distress ink, for example, will stay wet long enough to use embossing powders with it because of the finer mill, but it's not sticky enough to hold onto the larger granules of UTEE.  Here's the video on my YouTube channel, demonstrating the process for you.  Be sure to subscribe so you don't miss anything to come!  I also have other Infinity Engraving videos on my channel for you to check out!  Here's what I used in the video.
