Hello fellow scrappers!
I've recently run into containers of clearsnap/mixed media (by Donna... Salazar?) in a shop. I'm wondering how to use them, and for those who do, how different are they vs. embossing powders?
Thanks a lot for your help!
best wishes,
Emeline

Thanks! The dog on the photo is a bearded collie - very sweet gentle smart breed!

Are you talking about these products below? They're actually inks, not embossing powders.
If so, just look them up in the superstore and it gives some details about them. It also shows projects that were made using them.

Thanks Amy! Yes, these are the ones I saw in store! I just checked the superstore, but I'm not sure I get how different these inks are vs. Tim Holtz distress pads (for inking/coloring) or vs. clear embossing ink with distress embossing powder :-S
Anyone aware of a tutorial showcasing these products? *pretty please*

Here's a video I found online

Looks like the main difference is that it's a very thick ink.

Thanks Amy, super helpful! Looking at the video, I don't think these inks are tremendously different from the ones I have (versamark and the likes), at least for the use I make of them. I'll refrain from purchasing them for now! Thanks again for your help, much appreciated!
Cheers
Emeline

I had seen those and was wondering about them, too- the containers looked strange in the picture- I was like, 'are these inkpads or some kind of gel or WHAAAAaaat?'

Thanks Kory, I feel less silly to know there are other people out there who were also unsure about them
Let's say we keep each other posted, 1st one of us who tries them out lets the other know! ;-)
Btw GREAT to see a guy on sb.com, I'm now curious and going to take a peek at your gallery
Best wishes,
Emeline

I always thought they were more like paint...if you do a search for paint on here, they come up...
I would "paint" with them using a brush...watered down or on their own....
