Renew Embossing Plate by Baking - by Chrissy. When your embossing plate looks like the one on the left, wrap it in a single layer of foil, place in an oven-proof flat dish, and place another dish (the heavier the better) on top. Preheat oven to 170C (about 325F) and bake for 30 minutes. Carefully remove it from the oven & unwrap, using hot pad mitts (It will be VERY hot!). Let cool. Wash the plate to remove any debris. Then it should look like the one on the right. I tried this, & it works!
