  1. Mix up the strongest batch of Walnut ink you possibly can. Make sure all the crystals are dissolved.
  2. Spritz a piece of watercolour paper with water.
  3. Begin brushing the Walnut Ink over the paper.
  4. Before the Walnut ink dries, begin randomly sprinkling Distress Embossing Powder on the surface.
  5. Sprinkle Tro-Col Copper onto the surface. If the surface has begun to dry, spritz it again as you don't want everything to blow off when you begin heat setting.
  6. Heat set a small area at a time, working your way over the entire surface of the paper.
  7. You will have wonderful texture! Don't worry if some of the Distress Embossing Powder flakes off. It's meant to do that!
