I use cornstarch to stop the static. I have made a little bag out of the foot of a knee high stocking (new and clean with no runs)...I just chopped the top part off the stocking, put a scoop of cornstach in, knot the stocking to close it. I rub the bag across the paper before embossing and it greatly reduces stray embossing powder granules from sticking. I also turn the paper over and give it a nice flick or two to help knock off any stray powder. Works well for me.

Just want to thank everyone for their input here. I've gotten back into heat stamping and have found that I need to tap-tap-tap arooney and that seems to do the trick!

Thanks again!

Thanks again!
An occasional flick with a very fine paint brush helps with stubborn errant ep from time to time....Glad you got it going on!

It's the most magical part of stamping, love to watch as the powder melts.

Read a tip once that a small sock filled with corn starch could be used as an AS bag. Anybody ever try this? I use the dryer sheet, but the bag would be another option.
