Question stazon ink --- question -- help!

hi everyone ---

i'm having an issue with a couple of my stazon pads. hoping maybe it has happened to someone else - not that i wish it on anyone - LOL, but hoping someone can help. a few of them seem way to "juicy" . i just tried to stamp on a tile with a midnight blue pad, and it all ran together - to "wet". i even tried again - trying not to put so much on - helped a little, but still seemed to be runny.

suggestions? can i fix it some how? i'd hate to have to go buy a new pad -- haven't had it that long.

thanks for your help!

Blot it on paper until the pad isn't juicy. If you need to color a project this would be a great way to use up the ink using the direct to paper technique, I did it with a yellow pad once, but dark blue, that may be a harder to repurpose.

I agree, sounds like you just have a juicy pad. Or try stamping off on scratch paper first. But getting some of the juicy out of the pad is probably your best bet!
