I'm doing a demo tomorrow on the Faux Metal Technique.  And this is my 1st time doing it!!!  Could be a  lol  The secret was to stamp the image while the embossing powder is still hot.  Also heat it a little longer than usual so it's extra hot.  For my tag, I used 4 layers of silver embossing powder.  Hope that helps.  Have a good weekend, everybody!
