Alcohol Inks & Stamp Pads

Post by kt_dragonfly on Mon 1 Dec 2008 - 23:33

I need a reminder on the different techniques you get with the 2 different stamp pads - stazon & archival?

Can someone remind me please!

What you mean, hun? Different techniques?

Stazon is solvent based and archival is oil based but they're both fast.
Mostly you can use either/or for what you want to do.

with stazon, you can watercolour over it without smudging..think of it as permanent.. also on shiny surfaces, can be used on shrink and use heatgun

All the above with archival too.

But, if you want to do the resist technique with your alcohol inks then you need to use the archival. Ink your acetate, stamp with archival and then wipe off straight away.

I did, Kate, yes.

When you use stazon it can react with the alcohol as it\'s a solvent (especially on acetate) and you may get some of the image lifting where you don\'t want to.

I still have all my samples here, so I\'ll try and find a minute tomorrow and root them out for you. I\'ll post some up with some instructions again, hun. OK?

Better still, I\'ll go root them out and see if I can tell you something now so you can play tomorrow.

Right. Not gonna scan right now, but can remind you of a couple of things. First...ignore my comment above. It's not the acetate.

Basically, you can use the archival on any surface and it will be absolutely fine but you must use it if you want to do the resist on acetate.

On of the big differences was on glossy stuff. On photoglossy paper the alcohol ink lays on the surface. When you stamp with stazon, it reacts and some of the ink will lift around the image leaving a white line around your stamped bit. If you use glossy cardstock the alcohol ink will be absorbed. Your colours will dull because of this, but the stazon will work perfectly.
The archival will work perfectly on both glossy surfaces.

If you stamp with stazon on acetate and smudge it, you can use your blending solution to remove the image and start again. Of course, this means stamping on the opposite side to the inking or you'll remove the lot.

Then there was the one where I alcohol inked cardstock and then put a dollop of blending solution in one place to take the colour right back. Stamp over that bit to enhance a face or something on a stamp.

I also stamped with stazon on acetate and used the alcohol inks as paints with a brush just colouring parts of the stamped image.

Another one is to ink some acetate. Stamp with either stamp pad and then turn it over. Wet the back with a bit of DG and rub on some perfect pearls powder to give a lovely shiny backing.

Use alcohol inks on ordinary cardstock to give a lovely muted tone. Drag in straight lines to make a pattern. This technique works great on photoglossy using brown inks to give a wood effect.

And of course, don't forget to colour your brads, dominoes, acetate shapes, bottle caps, safety pins...etc, etc.

Hope that helps, hun.
