After the BC crusted I put a very light dusting of cornstarch onto the embosser and it worked pretty good as long as the base color was white.

Oh that's a great idea!

When I used the mat on mine, I also used my Melvira roller to lightly press it into the icing ... helped keep an even pressure on it.

Another way to keep the embosser from sticking is to use a piece of tulle (netting) under iticon_smile.gif Yes, you will get an ever so slight impression of the netting but really, no one will notice that.
