I have a bottle of detail black embossing powder that is very old, I can't seem to get it to emboss properly. Is it possible that embossing powder can lose it's power when it gets old?

I'm not sure. I had a white one that never embossed properly - it just didn't seem to melt. I took it back. But my others are 4 or 5 years old (goodness - I only just realised!!!) and have been dragged through the tropics and the desert and are still good.

What make is it? How long have you had it?

I've never had any go bad, but have had some cheaper ones that just didn't melt right.

I just used mine today and all of them are 10+ years old. I didn't have a problem with any of them!!!

I have some that is at least 14 years old and it is fine and always has. But I also had one (don't know how old it was) but could never get it to work right. I think it has more to do with the brand.

I've never had any of the powders go bad....but I've heard of problems when you don't use a good embossing glue....I like Versamark....
If you are using Versamark already, then maybe the powder is defective....
