DIY Texture Pressing With Customised Rubber Stamps- What To Do

Add another layer of customisation to your overall design and branding by texture pressing! Texture pressing can be performed in a variety of ways, including with just the use of customised rubber stamps. If you are interested in testing it out for yourself, here’s how:

Preparation

In order to accomplish texture pressing with customised rubber stamps, you will need, texture paste (preferably in white), ink pads,a toothbrush, rubber stamps with textures, cardstock, palette knives, and other embellishments (whenever applicable). Make sure you have all the items ready before beginning with your tasks. For items like crafting knives, palette knives and texture paste, they can be found in specialty stores dedicated to crafts as well as via online sources.

Base Creation

Once you have gathered the materials, begin with making the base layer. Using the back of your palette knife or craft knife, load it with small amounts of your texture paste. Secure your cardstock so it doesn’t move and begin applying the texture paste onto it. Make the layer as thin and even as possible so that it’s spread out well. One thing to note is that you need to make sure the area covered by your texture paste is the same or even more than the dimension of your stamped image.

Planning

Before you begin applying your customised rubber stamps, do take the time to plan the layout arrangement. How do you want to arrange your customised rubber stamps? What combinations do you want to use? If you have excess scrap paper, you can make a few test stamps so that you can have a physical comparison of different layout arrangements. Pick the one you enjoy best and begin re-inking so you can apply the customised rubber stamps onto your paste.

Ink

After preparing your texture paste and cardstock, you can now proceed to ink your customised rubber stamps. You can then gently press your rubber stamps into the texture paste- exercise care so your customised rubber stamps don’t slide while you are doing so. Secure both ends of your cardstock and slowly but firmly lift your customised rubber stamps off the paper. Repeat with other customised rubber stamps until you have completed your desired layout.

Dry/Wash

Leave the material to dry and cut it into size if you need to apply them to another project. The finishing effect should reflect the texture well and you will not be required to do anything else with it. Once you are sure everything has been done, you can proceed to wash and clean your rubber stamps.

Soak them in warm water and soap or hold the rubber portion under running water. To remove stubborn paste sticking to the rubber portions, gently scrub with the toothbrush until everything is clean. Leave your rubber stamp to dry by pressing them against tissue paper or cloth.
