Old embossing powder

Maggie Funke
Can embossing powder get old? My customer has some EP that is 20-25 years old. When using it is flat after heating.

I also have some really old embossing powder in my stash -- some as much as 35 years old.  I've never had this problem with any of it.  Perhaps your customer is heating it too long?  Overheating will first melt the embossing powder and then kind of evaporate and flatten it.

Often what makes it seem “old” is the absorption of humidity. Have your customer add a few grains of rice to the embossing powder and put it in an air tight container. Usually overnight is enough to refresh it. Then just leave the rice in.
