An excellent product for my purpose.
on 10 May 2013
As a card maker I have used this product with Spellbinder dies and embossing folders - cogs especially, in fact - for men's cards. To begin with I used a fine sandpaper sponge for distressing card but found this took the surface off the engraving card too much exposing the white core. I then tried washing up sponges with a scratchy surface which was less abrasive and pretty successful (polishing up with the sponge side). The edges of the sponge became less effective after a while and I then cut them up to give extra edges. It's really effective on the cogs which come up gleaming with a small amount of black still showing. I haven't tried it on more delicate dies but it would probably be just effective with care. White bits were successfully covered up with copper wax (I was using the copper engraving card).
Of course, I know that far more artistic achievements can be produced from this card but beyond my capabilities!
