Easily create texture and shine G&P products

Hello everyone, Kristie here with a product tip for you. If you love the shine that you get from the Globecraft & Piccolo 3D Enamel Gels, but also enjoy the texture that you get from dry embossing, why not combine the two!

Run your G&P bookboard bezel through an embossing folder to get yummy texture like this.

Then apply a nice layer of Globecraft & Piccolo 3D Enamel Gel to get this! I used Metallic Copper 3D Enamel Gel here and applied it directly from the bottle. Depending on how the light hits it, it sometimes appears red. The flourish is treated with Vintage Silver Embossing Powder.

Now you have the best of both worlds, shine and texture!
