a hairdryer would blow it all away. the heat gun blows the heat very gently. wait for a 50% coupon and get one at AC Moore or Michaels. our AC Moore sent coupons for 50% for tomorrow only (if you sign up for their emails, you'll get one that way too)
I've done a little bit of embossing, it's really neat! But the powder can be a pain to clean up (I had a disaster with silver powder recently, ack!)
Very likely. You've got to have the stickiness for the powder to stick.
The only thing with a heating gun if make sure you keep it moving or you're likely to scorch the paper.
I've heard you can hold it over a toaster ... LOL
...but I've never tried that one! I'd get the heat tool.
You need to use versamark or craft ink (pigment ink) because they stay wet long enough to hold the powder.
my ticker was taking up too much space, so: Robby-Apr06, Johnathan & Matthew-Mar08... you do the math. LOL

Toaster DO work great. Back in highschool, I bought a $5 cheapo used toaster from a second hand store for that purpose and it works fine. But...an embossing gun works so much better.
