What's this "magic" behind creating elegance effortlessly on both raw and finished surfaces?
Avoid making mistakes on the most important part of 3D embossing by following Amy's steps on how to properly apply the embossing gel with only three easy-to-use materials.
Materials Needed For Raw Surface:
- Raw wood surface
- Non-adhesive mylar stencil
- Rubber applicator
- Embossing gel
Additional Materials Needed For Finished Surface:
- Finished wood surface
- Clean Slate
- One Step
How To 3D Emboss Any Wood Surface
Note: Steps 1 and 2 are for finished wood surfaces. For raw wood surfaces, start with Step 3.
Step 1: Clean surface with Clean Slate
Step 2: Apply one coat of One Step
Step 3: Secure stencil on wood surface with tape
Step 4: Apply embossing gel using a rubber applicator. Hold the stencil with one hand while applying the gel evenly with light touch using the other hand. This prevents the stencil from moving.
Amy’s Tip: Rubber applicators are preferred because it allows you to pull across it and around on the stencil evenly.
Step 5: Lift the stencil at the same time to prevent smudging.
Now you know the step-by-step process to create raised elements on your furniture and décor.
