Tutorial - Walnut Ink Resist - updated
I said I would show you the demo on Walnut Ink Resist that I presented at our Ohio Gathering rubber stamping weekend. Glossy paper is used for this technique. The instructions are on the picture SLIDE but, for "newbies," you're basically going to:
- Ink your stamp with Versamark or embossing ink and stamp it on your glossy paper.
- Sprinkle stamped image with CLEAR embossing powder.
- With heat gun, heat emboss image until it melts to a shiny surface.
- Take the dauber on the Terra Cotta Walnut Ink bottle and swipe all over your image and paper. The embossed images will "resist" the ink and you'll get a really interesting vintage look to your work.
- Let the ink dry or you can wipe off excess ink with kleenex depending on the look you want. That's all there is to it!
The SLIDE show below shows variations of faux looks you can obtain when doing this technique. I used the Amelia paper collection to match this vintage look. Any questions? You must give it a try! It's lotsa fun. We'd love to see what you've done with it. Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
