Craft Chest offers an essential collection of Pergamano perforating and embossing tools that enable hobbyists and paper crafters to create beautiful and unique cards. Cards and other decorative pieces can be created using techniques such as stippling and perforating. Pergamano embossing tools are used to create raised relief within one's design. Embossing is used to create both concave and convex shapes by alternating the side on which the embossing is performed. Using the Pergamano embossing tools and appropriate embossing pad, the parchment is rubbed backwards and forwards or side to side in parallel movements with increasing downward pressure so that the parchment can be evenly stretched. A finished embossment will be satin-white in colour and will contrast with the translucency of the parchment paper.
