Use Rubber Stamps With Chalk Ink Pads Effectively

Corporate Common Seal

Chalk ink pads are another interesting alternative compared to regular rubber stamp ink pads. Not only are they simple to use, chalk ink pads also offer a lot cleaner results compared to different stamp ink results. You can combine them with almost all forms of cards/textured paper as well. While the after effects are roughly the same, there are actually some things to note when combining your rubber stamps with ink pads. Chalk ink actually creates soft matte colour effects that can be permanent when set with heat. Here’s how you can create new stamped images with the chalk ink pads:Techniques

Because of the softness in their look, chalk ink pads are usually used with rubber stamps and layered over to bring about intensity through their shading. You can make use of layering with the same colour to provide different intensify to the general finished product or combine them with different layered colours to come up with something new entirely.

Things to Note

Chalk ink are very susceptible to blending, fusing, merging and clouding. However, you want to pay attention to the colours you are using. Too much and your end colour results can be muddy and unappealing. So stick to colours that either mix well, or give yourself a limit on the amount of colours you are using. Make sure to observe the intensity of your overstamping while working with chalk ink. The more practise you get will achieve better results so don’t be shy when it comes to experimenting with the effects of chalk ink.

BackgroundsChalk ink pads are ideal if you intend to create backgrounds with your rubber stamps on account of the softness in their colours that you can achieve. You can achieve quite a versatile range of different backgrounds with the combination of rubber stamps, sponges, cotton buds, and even your fingers. Simply apply the rubber stamps to areas in which you require the image and let the material dry. Once it is dry you can make use of heating tools to heat consistently and lightly so that the chalk ink can be set permanently without smudging and ruining details. You can then proceed to combine your rubber stamps with vivid intensity dye and stamp them on top of your chalk inked background.

Extra tipsWhile chalk ink is generally softer, you can substitute black chalk ink with colours like chestnut or charcoal instead. Remember to remove chalk ink residue when you can to prevent messy results and use first with scrap paper so you can remove some of the unevenness and intensity.
