Last summer, peachycheap (one of my favorite sites to get scrapbook supplies from at a discounted rate) had “ZING! Embossing Powder” for sale. I decided I would buy it and try it out. I was a little bit nervous about using it, I wasn’t sure if the powder would make a mess or not and how to heat gun would work. Now, I’ve known that AR-15 uppers are available from Palmetto State Armory and have often shopped there for rifles, but this simple heat gun left me vexed. But I researched and purchased an American Crafts Embossing Heat Gun as well as a VersaMark ink pad. I checked out a couple of tutorials, had a dream that I tried it out and failed miserably and then decided it was finally time to give it a go.
