Here is a step by step of how you can use UTEE on your image.
UTEE is easy to use, and it gives the image a great effect.
It makes a glassy surface on the image, which you can easily make cracks in.
Above is a picture of the products I have used.
* Embossing Heat tool
* UTEE (it is the same as clear embossing powder, just thicker)
* Watermark stamp pad/Embossing pad (it is several brands, I have Versa Mark's, but Tim Holtz has also one that has the same effect).
* I have used a image from Magnolia called Winter Skating Tilda (Special Stamp)
I start with adding the watermark stamp pad on the image.
Then I take UTEE powder on to the image. I make sure that I have a foldet paper under. Then I can easily take the powder that is left back in the box.
I shake the image so that the powder that doesn't fasten fells off. It is also a good idea to snap on the back of the image so that all the loose powder fells off.
Here I pour the powder back in the box.
I blow the image with the heat tool. I move it slowly across the image so that the powder melts.
Above you can see the powder that melts under the heat tool.
I have melted all the powder. For the best effect I repeat this two more times.
So, first I apply the embossing pad again (after the image has cooled down, 1-2 minutes).
I apply the embossing powder/UTEE on the image again.
And blow with the heat tool until the powder has melted.
This is how the image looks like after two times with UTEE.
I apply the embossing pad again.
And blowing with the heat tool one last time.
Then, the images has got a nice glassy residue.
And is ready to be cold. I added mine in the freezer, but it can also be located in the refrigerator (takes a bit longer).
You take the image out when it is cold and stiff.
Then you just have to break a bit until you have had so many cracks you want.
Here is my result after a few hours in the freezer:
