That's a great idea for underhood insulating mats-I'd just paint them dull black...
Jus' sayin' :)

Guys you can also look for the powders at rubber stamp stores or scrapbooking stores. The rubber stamp stores are the ones that sell all te card stock and the inks and stuff. A friend of mine used to own a store and she carried all kinds. They may even sell the proper heat gun if you want to really emboss things.

Something else that works well is baking soda. I'm definitely going to try your spray adhesive method Brian! Any certain type or brand that you use?

roger, you have to be careful with bakin soda, i use it to add texture to rust when im weathering. if you dont seal it well with something it will turn white again in 6 months.....

cheers

Yeah, I learned that lesson the hard way also. I did a '72 Nova interior with it and sprayed flat black enamel over it. A few months later, it was covered with little white specks. Looks kinda cool,but definitely not the look I was going for. Now, I primer and paint it with lacquer. No more problems! I'll have to pick up some embossing powder and spray glue next time I'm at the Hobby Lobby and give it a try.

Yeah I've tried flocking a couple of times now and I haven't been that thrilled with the results. What section in Michael's has this embossing powder? I'm going to give it a try.

When using embossing powder, after it is applied, and dried, I go over it and coat the powder with clear flat or semi gloss acrylic clear. It will not change the appearance whatsoever, but greatly enhances it'd durability factor, and insures that none will 'float' around your interior, after you have finished assembly...Embossing powder, while much less apt to become dislodged (like flocking)...on occasion, it WILL....'Z'

I use embossing powder all the time for my interiors. I only purchase the white powder. I use a white glue, thinned with a little water, brush it on and sprinkle the powder. I let it dry in usually 20 mins, then I can paint the embossing powder with spray and/or brush. Because this is basically a paper product, it absorbs the moisture from the glue and paint adheres to it well.
