I love the look of rust. Something about its rich, aged look really appeals to me. It should be no surprise then that I am in love with the new Real Rust Embossing Powder from G&P. This stuff looks like the real deal folks! I used some to create a steampunk/vintage pendant that I can't wait to wear!

- G&P Real Rust Embossing Powder
- G&P Embossing Powder Adhesive
- G&P Glastique Gloss
- G&P Mars Black 3D Enamel Gel
- G&P Vintage Gears Set
- G&P Cerchio Key Charm
- G&P Gear Bezel
I began by coating a G&P Gear Charm with G&P Mars Black 3D Enamel Gel, and setting it aside to begin drying.
Then I prepared the key charm and gear shapes for heat embossing by coating them with G&P Enamel Powder Adhesive. This is an essential for any embossing fans. Application is so easy!
The next step was applying the G&P Real Rust Enamel Powder. Like all of G&P's other powders, you need to shake the jar very well before using. There are several different materials inside the powders that mix to make amazing results! I used my heat gun to set the pieces.
Once they were cool, I placed them onto the gear charm by just gently pressing them into the 3D Enamel Gel. Since it wasn't completely dry, the gel acted as an adhesive. I used G&P Glastique to adhere anything that wouldn't stick.
The final step was covering the entire piece with G&P Glastique and setting it aside to dry. This process does take time, around 7-8 hours, but the end result is a beautiful glossy pendant!
