Embossing Powder to match Insignia Red?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a red embossing powder to match (Testors) Insignia Red.  Insignia Red is a dark red.  I haven't been able to find one that matches or is close.

A couple of possible places to look would be any arts and crafts store that offers book making materials. Also consider using a dark colored embossing powder and then a dust coat of the shade of red you're after. I suggest spraying light coats so as to not lose the texture and hold the object you're painting at arm's length so that it will lead to a rougher texture as well.

"Hampton Art" carries a very large array of colors of embossing powders in solid and metallic colors.

I buy them in sets that contain 16 different colors per package.

A couple of different sets should get you nearly any color that you can think of.


For around $20.00 a set, you'll have enough embossing powder to last you a very long time.


These are most of the reds that I have on hand.
