2. Place the ink side of the tracing paper face down onto the box and tape into place.

3. Using the embossing tool, rub over the image gently to transfer the ink onto the box. Peel back the paper and check the pressure you have applied is enough.

If you need to, fill in any gaps with a pencil.

5. Use a fine tip to begin with, you can build up thickness if you need to later. Experiment with different tips to create different effects.

Top Tip!

As you burn you will notice some build up on the tip, rub the tip onto the back of an old tea strainer to remove it.
