Cardstock? Check. Stamp? Check. Ink? Check. UTEE? Huh?
UTEE, short for Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel, is truly the unsung hero in a stamper’s tool box. And it’s not just for stampers. It doesn’t matter if you’re a scrapbooker, a card maker or a whatever, UTEE translates well to any project you may be working on.
So what is UTEE? Oh my goodness, it’s simply amazing stuff. UTEE is a kicked up, turbo charged version of embossing powder that is thicker and chunkier and can stand up to extreme conditions that no embossing powder could tolerate. It creates height and dimension and provides a solid, lustrous coverage that can take on any shape or form and can bend to your every will. What UTEE can do is nothing short of miraculous.
You’ll also learn how to create stunning backgrounds, how to use it on a wide variety of surfaces, and how to create exceptional embellishments that will dazzle on any layout, card, altered art or mixed media project.
I’ll provide you with techniques upon techniques that will have you creating backgrounds, embellishments, mixed media projects and even jewelry like a pro! (Please note that this class is heavy on techniques and that we’ll focus more on learning the techniques than cranking out fully-finished projects.)
There’s no doubt that using UTEE can be tricky. Getting it to just the right thickness without it cracking or splintering, getting it to just the right temperature so it doesn’t yellow or turn a garish shade of brown, getting it to just the right consistency so you can drip, drizzle and dollop to your heart’s content...
There are so many things that can go off kilter, but I’ll share my bag of tips and tricks that will leave you squealing with delight when your projects come out just the way you want them to. And if they don’t, that’s okay. I’ll show you how to fix those oopsies as well as ways to cover them up when they’ve gone beyond the point of no return.
