We shouldn't confuse the 2 machines - with imagebox you first make a floor to the stamp. If imagebox stamps are distorted, polymer is flowing. After flipping the clamp over for the 2nd exposure, try leaving it to settle for a few seconds before putting under the light. As always, if you have any questions, you should always contact Photocentric for advice. Thanks.
Polymer: The gel is non toxic but it can be sticky. Gloves are a good idea. Do also use plenty of warm water and dish soap - washing in cold water or without dish soap will be much stickier!
Adhesive: Someone asked about tape to attach Stampmaker stamps to a block. If you have tape in the kit, do apply this to the block, not your stamp. The latest kits have a "cling" film instead of tape which is much easier to place on the block and stamps will cling to it and are easy to remove and store. The cling is also available for purchase on its own at $1.99 for 2 pieces - they can be reused indefinitely.
