If you are going to the NAEA convention this year i will be giving a
presentation of the embossing techniques and how to make a template. The
first 30 people will recieve a pre-made template, paper, embossing dowel, wax
fro making an embossing. I will have a handout and demonstrate the template
process as well as make an embossing. Slides of student work will help in
seeing the levels and how I get them to see it as well.

If you are not going I will soon have a short lesson plan on the web page and
you can use that. These are multiple levels that use thin pieces of railroad
board and glued together to produce a small template. The levels are
produced by identifying the levels that you want and then cutting all the
levels as one big shape. Another board is glued under that and the next
levels are cut keeping the first cut as one level. Every level down from
that is cut so that it is a step down progression of flat surfaces and the
edges of borad. These edges are what you use to make the embossing. I can
show you better than just writing about it, so I hope you can make the
