Watercolour and Rubber Stamps – 5 Tips and Tricks to Try

    Watercolour and Rubber Stamps – 5 Tips and Tricks to Try

    Watercolour is a beautiful medium on it’s own, however when combined with rubber stamps, the beauteous nature of watercolour is further amplified. Here are 5 tips and tricks to try out when combining these two elements:

    Watercolour and Rubber Stamps

    1. Materials

    There are actually a wide variety of materials one can use to create watercolour rubber stamped images. Some good recommendations are watercolour ink, watercolour paint, and crayons. Before you begin experimenting with materials however, keep in mind that you will be dealing with water-based products like paint and ink, and also water itself depending on what you’re using so just to make sure that your paper won’t face risks of tearing, use a thicker material for your paper- like card stock or watercolour paper.

    1. Stamping with Watercolour paint directly

    Stamping with watercolour paint directly gives a vivid vibrant after effect. You can mix and match watercolour paint to achieve different colour tones as well. Be careful and use only thin layers since watercolour paint has a tendency to smear so wait for it to dry before overlaying another layer over the first with your rubber stamps.

    1. Stamping with watercolour

    When you mix watercolour paint with water and use it with rubber stamps, the stamped images are with a softer consistency. You are likelier to gain gradient effects, overlays and soft hues when mixing watercolour paint and water so if you are looking for something softer, this would be a good option. In addition, embossing with different powders like pearl powder would look best with that.

    1. Alternative

    If you do not have watercolour paint and would still like to recreate the effect, you can actually substitute the watercolour paint with wax and water instead. Make use of a misting bottle for even water distribution and apply a water mist on your rubber stamps. Colour with the wax crayons on the damp parts of your rubber stamp and mist is once more if it becomes dry, stamp on the paper when you are done.

    1. Additional tip

    Everything becomes a design element to work with. Rubber stamps and watercolour on wet paper and rubber stamps and watercolour on dry paper both achieve different results when compared with one another so do a few test prints to see which end effect you prefer to work with. Remember that watercolour effects are notoriously difficult to reproduce so use it to your advantage. You can experiment with different techniques, including overlapping stamped images or even stippling/splashing watercolour paint onto your paper.
