Embossing Fluid

 You know the lovely embossing powders that you can sprinkle over stamped images, then applying heat? 
Well, you can now apply that technique to your lettering.  Simply mix up the following recipe, use your dip pen and have fun!

 2 teaspoons distilled water
1 teaspoon glycerine (from drug store)
6 to 8 drops gum arabic
few drops of gouache

 It's difficult to see the lettering which a clear fluid, so try adding a little alizarin crimson gouache to make it slightly pink.  Don't overdo it.  You just want to barely see it for embossing purposes.
