Can I use a hair dryer for heat-set embossing?
No. A hair dryer does not have enough concentrated heat to melt the embossing powder, and the strong air will blow the powder off of the project surface. A heat tool is the fastest way to emboss, but holding the paper over other sources of heat such as a light bulb or the top of a toaster oven will also work.
