Does anyone know if you can heat emboss (using UTEE) a larger area successfully? I have some larger potty people that are wood that I am putting on a heart to represent our family. The people are about 4.5x2.25 inches. I have painted them black but thought UTEE would give a little dimension. Any ideas?

Not a problem, I've used the technique on pictures larger than that.

the good thing is that if you aren't happy with the result you could add more UTEE and reheat.

1st layer could be a little bumpy, but just reink and add more UTEE and it will smooth out, depending on what look you like.

You can also simply layer up regular embossing powders too!

On this page I added a bunch of layers of embossing powder then pushed a rubber stamp into it before it dried to get a fun texture on my chipboard tag.
