  1. Wonderful powder creations. Not sure i know what pigment powders are. I like to watch the embossing powder melt as the heat tool is used. Not seen infused powder stains and this is wonderful.

    1. I am assuming they mean pigment powders like Perfect Pearls. You can stamp with Versamark, sprinkle on the powders, and they will give a nice finish. Perfect Pearls have a binder in them, so they won’t rub off. But if you want to be sure, or are using other brands, you can spray a mist of water into the air & wave your powdered project through the mist to set them. HTH! :) ~ Andrea
