About the Inks
Some of the Key Features
- Each of the Cat's Eye ink pads within 'Queue' are interchangeable, so if necessary the pads can be changed around and reordered. This is useful for people who find working with small Cat's Eye sized ink pads fiddly, using the top pad while clicked onto the unit gives a greater degree of control.
- Each foam pad is raised. This means that the user has greater degree of control over how much ink is added to the stamp or paper.
- The shape of the ink pad lends itself to detailed use, for instance inking a stamp with different colors.
- The pads are re-inkable.
The Inks In Use
The inks work well both when applied to stamps and when used direct-to-paper. The shape of the ink pad makes applying inks to large and small stamps easy and they lend themselves to creative techniques, for instance applying different color inks to a stamp without using a brush.
The ink is excellent used on stamps with fine detail on absorbent surfaces, although the slightly soft look might mean that they are not ideal for use with text stamps, however this would depend on the feel of the project and the required effect.
These inks have worked well in the following projects and techniques:
- Direct-to-Paper backgrounds
- Coloring the edges of torn paper
- Applied to vellum when heat set
- Ink pads stamped direct on paper as stamps
- Use with shrink plastic
- Painting and coloring
Multi-color ink packs are good for beginners as they provide a selection of colors. The range of colors is impressive.
These Ink Pads are Good For Projects Where:
- The qualities of pigment inks are required, but with the ease of use of dye inks.
- Soft, matte shades for stamping and coloring is required.
- Direct to paper techniques are used for backgrounds.
- Embossing is required on normal absorbent papers – the ink is too fast drying.
- Deep sharp images are required.
