This is the first embossing powder I have tried from Tim Holtz. It "melts" very quickly compared to most on the market. The result is an allmost off white-but not the greyish type color. It's not a tan either. The color is very unique and completes the grouping of Tim Holtz Distress line. It dries to an almost grainy feel that once you brush off the "grit" the result is very subtle grainy yet very Distressed. You have a very distinced image that is worn and old loooking.
I am just getting into embossing, so ordered this color to have on hand. The powder looks yellow at first, but as soon as you heat it, the correct color comes thru. I highly recommend a good heating tool if you're going to use this product. Also, be sure to have a qtip on hand to help wipe of the excess powder before you heat it.
