What is Joseph’s Coat?
Joseph’s Coat is a technique using heat embossing and clear embossing powder. Some may refer to this a the emboss resist technique. No matter what you call it, it’s an amazing technique you can use to create one of a kind projects.
To do the Joseph’s Coat technique you will need a heat gun, clear embossing powder, versamark ink, as well as water based ink in a varitey of colors. While the technique is easy to do, because you will need more than just the basic tools, this technique might not be suitable for a beginning stamper who made not have the necessary tools yet.
Here’s how to do the Joseph’s Coat technique
First select some different colored waterbased inks. Next, lay some of the ink color down on a piece of white cardstock. I used the blending brushes from Stampin’ Up! to add color to my white cardstock. Then, I inked my stamp with Versamark ink and stamped it on the white cardstock I had colored. Once my image was stamped, I added clear embossing powder and heat set with my heat gun. The clear embossing powder allows the color underneath to shine through.
Once the embossing powder was set, I went over the entire image with Night of Navy Ink (you could also use Memento Tuxedo Black or any dark color) using blending brushes to get good coverage. Once I was happy with how much dark ink I added, I wiped off the excess ink (from the embossed image) and created my card. How did I do?
Here’s a little video I made demonstrating this technique. I upload videos to my Crafty Klock YouTube Channel every Tuesday and Thursday. I’d love it you would subscribe to my channel. Be sure to click the bell icon to be notified when new content is uploaded. Thank you!
