Stamping On Acetate With StazOn

by Nadine Carlier

Wedding Card by Nadine Carlier IC

Have you ever tried to stamp onto plastic or acetate? Normally it takes close to never to dry and if you do finally get it to dry it will still smear ruining what you just stamped. Not if you use StazOn ink! I used a background stamp with some Cotton White Opaque StazOn Ink to create this pretty wedding card.

Watch my video tutorial below to see how I created my card and how amazing StazOn works on acetate. Enjoy!

See How to Make a Delightful Lapis Blue Jar

by Neva Cole

2017 March Lapis Glass Jar with Stazon ink from Tsukineko
The color challenge for April at Imagine is the stunning deep blue color of Lapis Lazuli. With a little research, I discovered that it is semi-precious stone used in ancient mosaics and as a pigment in many well-known paintings. It most likely is what is referred to as sapphire in Biblical times as the sapphire was not known at that time. I was inspired to create a mini Lapis jar from a votive candle holder and large glass drop fashioned into a lid. This simple project is only time-consuming due to dry time and the results are very realistic.

Level: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour + dry time

Directions

start with the Ashland Basic Jar

Step 1

Apply StazOn Opaque Cotton White directly to the surfaces of the votive candle holder and the glass drop.

applying ink to glass

Step 2

Use and Ink Blusher to gently move ink and cover the surface of the glass. Set aside to dry.

Step 3

Place StazOn Azure on a plastic surface (for ease of clean-up) and gently apply to the surfaces with an Ink Blusher over the StazOn Cotton White. Work quickly to prevent picking up the Cotton White, some variation will add to the realistic look of the project. Set aside to dry.

Step 4

Add GlazOn Layer Protectant to each surface with an Ink Blusher. Set aside to dry.

Step 5

Apply a second layer of StazOn Azure with an Ink Blusher. Set aside to dry. Apply a second layer of GlazOn and set aside to dry, each successive layer requires more drying time.

Step 6

Place StazOn Metallic Gold on a plastic surface (for ease of clean-up) and apply with crumpled cling wrap to the surfaces to mimic gold flecks in the Lapis stone. Set aside to dry. Apply a final coat of GlazOn and set aside to dry. Stain a small wood bead with StazOn Azure and set aside to dry. Thread wire through bead and twist into a fixture. Adhere to the lid with E600 adhesive. This Lapis and Gold glass jar would make a great addition to a table setting or coffee table with matching ceramics or white flower arrangements. Enjoy!

Inking on Burlap Canvas

Furry Family

by Monica Edwards

A handmade custom home decor art piece made by inking a stretched burlap canvas with StazOn and Encore Ulitmate Metallic inks with photo of the family dog and the world Family in Silver chipboard.

For those of us who own pets generally they are just as much as part of our family as our own kids. My daughter would often pick up every stray humanly possible off the street and bring them home. I remember coming home to a dog with one tooth, shaggy fur that looked like it had not had a bath in years, just laying and relaxing on my expensive couch! But they can worm their way into your heart, and become another member of the Family!

Skill: Beginner
Time: 2 hours

Directions

Step 2

Leaving the tape on the canvas, lay the stencil on top of the canvas. Using StazOn ink in Jet Black and a dauber, ink over the stencil design pieces you want to show. Once done remove the washi tape to reveal perfect stripes!
