Wonderful Wonder Embossing Crystals

Hi Everyone

Well last week's Efcolor One Day Special on Hochanda TV was an amazing success! I had a fab time...again! They are such a great team at the studios and the viewers are just the best!

On Saturday Justin and Gordon from Be Creative! were there with their Wonder Embossing Crystals and I just couldn't wait to get my hands on them. They work brilliantly on Efcolor blanks with the Efcolor Tealight Stove...



They also work with Efcolor powders too ;) ...


This sample I made by enamelling the blank with a thick layer of Efcolor powder first and then added a few Goldenite Wonder Crystals before replacing it on the stove to melt.

You can also use the Be Creative! Wonder Tape on the blanks when melting the Wonder Crystals on the Efcolor Tealight Stove...


What you will find is that the Be Creative! Wonder Embossing Crystals, when melted, are more liquid and less viscous than Efcolor powders. As such it makes swirling them very, very easy as you can see. :)

If you cover your blank with a thin layer of Efcolor powder and melt it before adding Wonder Embossing Crystals you will find that the Wonder Crystals will sit on the top...


If you want to combine Efcolor powders and the Wonder Crystals it's best to apply a layer of Efcolor and add the Wonder Crystals before you start heating your blank. That way you can swirl the combined powders if desired...


(btw: I'm really pleased this how this blank turned out! I think it looks really cool and artsy!)

For anyone thinking of investing in some Be Creative! Wonder Embossing Crystals here's the range as it stands at the moment...

Agate
Carnelian
Chrysoprase
Goldenite
Goldstone
Leopard Jasper
Lodolite Quartz
Red Aventurine
Verdite Green
Picture Jasper
Tiger Eye

Oh and by the way you can use Wonder Tape with Efcolor powders too if you want...


It acts a like the Efcolor Adhesive allowing you to cover set areas with a thin layer of Efcolor. ;)

So I think I'm going to have a lot more fun experimenting with Wonder Embossing Crystals and Efcolor :)

Happy Crafting Everyone!
