So for those of you who are new to Embellishment Mousse, I’m sure you are asking this question:

What is it???

I like to think of it as a creamier, smoother embossing paste that has a pearlized/metallic sheen. The consistency of the paste feels like spreadable butter; literally! It is THAT smooth. Because it is so luscious, it blends on paper effortlessly; to blend it onto your paper, you can use foam applicators, a palette knife, soft cloth, or even your finger!

Embellishment Mousse is also highly pigmented, which means it will show up on any color of paper, including black. When you apply the mousse onto paper, you cannot control the luminosity but you do have control over the opacity. The thicker or more concentrated you apply the mousse, the less you will see the paper underneath; and vice versa for applying thinner concentrations.

You can do many different things with Embellishment Mousse. Please see the video below that features a quick overview of some of the techniques that can be achieved with the mousse, along with examples from previous works I have created. If you want more step-by-step details on the projects I showcase and talk about in the video, you’ll find them listed further down in this post.
