I've just discovered how fun embossing powder can be.

A lady at my LSS told me that not all embossing powders are created equal, some are better than others. In your opinion...what is the best brand of embossing powder?

Thanks for your help.

I LOVE American Crafts Zing. But with that said, I haven't tried too many others.

I really love Zing as well, I have a few different brands of embossing powder and the best I have by far is the zing, some of them are terrible

Thanks Peas!

I have a funny feeling that embossing isn't going to be very good for my scrapping budget.

Another vote for Zing! I hated embossing for a long time, but I saw some great projects with the opaque white and figured "I have a couple bucks, why not try it?" and tossed it into my cart with an order I was already making. Well, now I have 4 more opaque colours and I think I want more. Evil stuff, but WONDERFUL!
