    Rub the edges of the canvas with VersaMark ink; sprinkle Seth Apter's Rocky Road embossing powder over the inked areas and heat until desired consistency* is reached.

    *Note - Seth Apter's Rocky Road embossing powder is very chunky so it can be heated to varying degrees of melt. You can heat it just a little to keep the rough, chunky look or continue to melt it until it creates a thick, smooth layer of embossing. It is totally up to you and the look you want to create.
