EMBOSSING POWDERS

Getting started:

  • Embossing powders (EPs) are used in conjunction with a heat gun that melts the powder onto your surface, (most surfaces work great)
  • stamp with a pigment ink pad or watermark ink pad, sprinkle EP on image, remove excess powder & heat until melted, (but not more than that)
  • pile powder on any surface that you can sneak a heat gun underneath, (no inks needed), heat from below 
  • use water instead of an ink pad to create patterns, sprinkle EP on them, remove excess and heat until melted

Our embossing powders have additional mica that sometimes likes to "halo" on paper. A few tricks to help prevent this are:

  1. Make sure the card stock/paper you use has a flat coating, (rather than a more fibrous or textured finish).
  2. Wipe your surface with a dryer sheet (bounce, etc) before stamping.
  3. Use a dusting cloth (like swifter) after you emboss & the embossing powder has cooled
  4. Try heating the embossing powder from underneath to prevent the powder moving as you heat it.

SPRAYS

When filling your Lindy's Stamp Gang Starbursts, Moon Shadows or Glitz Spritzes, make sure you use warm water, (not too hot). We recommend filtered water, if you have it, though tap water will work fine.  
***If you know your water is full of minerals or chemicals, we would highly recommend using filtered water just to make sure it doesn't react with the colors.

FILLING YOUR BOTTLE FOR THE FIRST TIME

  1. Remove sprayer & tap out any extra powder in tube
  2. Fill to fill line on the label, with warm water.  Stir.
  3. LET SIT AT LEAST 10 MINUTES TO LET EVERYTHING DISSOLVE OR YOU CAN GET CLOGGING!
  4. Replace sprayer. Stir, swirl, shake & spray to your heart's content.

TIPS

  • Quick, rapid pushing on the sprayer will give more of a fine mist.  Slower, more firm pushing on the sprayer will give more splatters and texture.  
  • Our sprayers are not just another boring fine mist sprayer, they were chosen by Lindy to have a little "splatter" when they sprayed because she loved texture! So experiment and see what great things you can create.
    If you need the even coverage of a fine mist sprayer, we recommend you either over spray and wipe away the excess with a paper towel.

SQUIRTS

When filling your Lindy's Stamp Gang Starbursts Squirts, (yes, we know they've got a funny name), make sure you use warm water, (not too hot). We recommend filtered water, if you have it, though tap water will work fine.  
***If you know your water is full of minerals or chemicals, we would highly recommend using filtered water just to make sure it doesn't react with the colors.

FILLING YOUR BOTTLE FOR THE FIRST TIME

  1. Remove lid & pop out silver lining (we poke it with a pencil)
  2. Fill to fill line on the label, with warm water.  Stir well.
  3. LET SIT AT LEAST 10-15 MINUTES TO LET EVERYTHING DISSOLVE, (yes, we know this is torture).  The longer the better with Squirts, as they thicken a bit more when left for a while to give you a more paint-like viscosity.
  4. Replace squirt lid. Squirt, dribble, pour these babies all over the place.

TIPS

  • Make sure your lid is closed EVERY TIME, (one of our designers had a beautiful facial treatment when her squirts squirted)
  • These are designed to use like acrylic paints, so don't be shy!  (just don't forget they are dye based & love porous surfaces, including skin)
  • Customize your art mediums easily by just adding a bit of your squirts & mixing away

MAGICALS & MAGICAL SHAKERS

Our Magicals are just that, MAGICAL!!!  These powdered dye based pigments are unlike any "pigment powder" that you've ever seen, as ours are dye based and "stain" rather than float within mediums. 

GETTING STARTED: 

  • magicals are dye based, so use with caution, they will stain anything porous, including skin, fabric, carpet, etc
  • this also means they are wonderful on anything porous!
  • powders are highly pigmented, so powders go a long way.  Only start with a tiny amount
  • sprinkle powder (either directly out of the shaker or with a fan brush) on your porous surface & spritz with water 
  • spritz surface with water & sprinkle over for a different look
  • paint as a watercolor (either dry or hydrated with a bit of water)
  • take a bit out, mix with water & paint (adding more or less powder for lighter or darker versions of the color)
  • mix powder with any medium to colorize it & make it unique (from gel mediums to pastes & liquids)
  • mix with rubbing alcohol to create alcohol inks (80% or higher)
  • sold in sets of 5 (1/4oz) jars or individually in (1oz) shakers

Magical Shakers vs Magicals....that age-old question!  They really are the same beast overall, just in different packaging, product quantity and a few minor tweaks.  Some shaker colors, (the ones that don't match the sprays), have low key shimmer to appeal to everyone from paper crafters to artists alike, where the others are just like their matching sprays; full of shimmery goodness. Shakers have almost double the amount of glorious powder than the magical jars, which is why they seem pricier, (we really do try to give you the best bang for your buck).  

DAUBER CAPS

  • Our dauber caps fit the spray bottles perfectly & give you more control in application or to create starburst effects

    SPRAYER PROBLEMS?

    Our sprayers are guaranteed non-clogging, so if you are having issues, try these tricks:

    1. Clear the tube (toothpicks work great)
    2. Cut off a bit of the end of the tube 
    3. If that doesn't do it, stomp up & down & email us because you got a REALLY stubborn one!

    If you have ANY problems after trying these tricks... from leaking, to sprayers not depressing correctly, to sprayers not spraying, etc., please, please, please email us (info@lindysgang.com) and we will replace any defective sprayer at no charge!  We stand by our products and want our customers to be fully satisfied, so please let us know, we really do want to hear from you!
