Baked Love

Hi Everyone and Welcome 

I got the 'baking' bug again! Yes, I've been in my art 'kitchen' again creating with Seth Apters/ Emerald Creeks fabulous Baked Texture Embossing powders.
Usually Versamark is my 'go to' medium when embossing but often that results in a smooth finish which wasn't really what I was after. I was after a more textural finish. So I used Finnabair's heavy body gel with the Baked Textures and I have to say I was super impressed with the result!
They were just the ideal partners to create real depth of texture!
I used 6 flavours of Baked Texture
Rocky Road, Deep Sea, Patina Oxide, Chunky Rust, Ancient Amber and Dirty Sand
and they created a fabulous array of colour, tone and texture blending together as well as standing alone to hold their own identity.   
I was reluctant to embellish as I was loving all the texture and colour so I kept it simple- a length of rusty metal, die cut circles, a brass handle and a heart.....
... a Baked Texture Patina Oxide heart that I made using a silicone heart mould - the sort you use to make sweet treats! Well I was 'baking' after all!  Isn't is lush, almost good enough to eat!
   'Baked Love'

  1. Absolutely gorgeous Amanda, I love using gel medium with the embossing powders and pastes. Fantastic texture, love how each colour stands proud and some areas blended too. Wonderful colour on the heart, picking up the teal colours in the melted powders. Tracy ❤️❤️

  2. This piece is just gorgeous Amanda. I love the texture you achieved with the gel as a base. I completely understand how you wanted to let it show. That heart and rusty strip were the perfect touch and oh what a beautiful patina! Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent. xx

  3. The textures and design are fabulous Amanda, love it xxx

  7. The texture is rich and a sensory delight. Thanks. A question though: do you actually heat emboss using the heavy body gel, or are you simply using the gel as an adhesive for the various powders?

  8. Hi Helen Thank you for visiting and for your kind words . In answer to your query heres the process I used :
    Apply heavy body gel using a spatula or fingers
    Cover with baked texture
    Heat set with heat gun .

    Hope that helps
