    Embossing

    So Im thinking about branching out into the world of embossing. Just wondering if others do this and if so what would your suggestions be for a newbie?

    Im not wanting to spend a whole lot at the moment, so no machine embossing to start off with, but I have seen on youtube that you can have some sucess with a rolling pin and the like with the folders still. Has anyone done this? Does it really work?

    I looked in town today and can only get the embossing tool, no plates so will look online later for some. Any suggestions on brand or store?

    As for heat embossing I can get the heat tool but no powders, so again an online job. Ideas for powder brands? What sort of ink is best to use?

    And lastly I guess the most important thing is heat embossing, dry embossing by hand or machine embossing, what is your preference and why?

    Thank you all

    Feel free to make comment on anything else you think I should know!!
