Default Tissue Paper

For those who have played with "tissue paper" stamping: Does the brand of tissue paper makes a difference? I'm thinking of Hallmark vs Dollar Store quality. Do we need to spend more to get good results? If you think so, please share the brand name(s) you have had success with and where you purchased them. Thank you!

I'm not totally certain what technique you're referring to, but for a dollar, I'd just start with the dollar tree's pack of white. I think it's probably fine. And you get like forty sheets for a buck.

There is one brand of paper-- Target's spritz, maybe-- that seems a little stiffer, like one side is coated, and if this is for something like the faux silk technique, I'd think that would not work as well.

Have fun!

There is a faux silk tutorial in the Tutorials forum here on SCS!

I have always used cheapo tissue paper for this. Nothing fancy needed!

That sounds similar to the faux silk technique. Have you seen the SCS tutorial? It's located here.

I tried it once last year: you can see my card here though the details are hard to see. I think I probably just used dollar tree's, because that's usually what's in my closet. I don't recall having much of a problem with the ink I stamped with; it was more being careful with the copics to avoid bleeding outside the lines.

I'd probably stamp on the rough side, thinking the stamp wouldn't slide around as much as if I was stamping on a shiny/coated side. But it might be one of those things that's just something you'll have to experiment with a little, see what way you like the best. I'm sorry I don't have better answers for you!

I've had better success stamping with StazOn or Rangers Archival than with Versafine, which is my usual ink.

I just use dollar store tissue paper and have had no problems. Good Luck

Loll Thompson did a great video tutorial on using tissue paper:

I've used various tissue papers and it doesn't seem to matter to me.

I have used Dollar Store and Store brands...either works fine. I highly recommend Loll's tutorial that Susan suggested for answers to many of your questions and awesome techniques.

Default Tissue paper buffed with furniture polish :)

I watched Patti Tolley Parrish -- Inky Obsessions Youtube gelli printing video a few days ago where the she used Dr. Dan's unscented beeswax polish to buff the printed tissue paper after the paint dried completely. The results were amazing! The tissue paper became translucent and the printed images "popped"! Here's the video it's over 2 hrs but you can move forward to 2:24 mins to see her prints and at the very end she uses the product on one of the prints. https://youtu.be/HvKE3zHBCuI

I believe SSS offers Tissue Paper that you can use. Jennifer McGuire did a tutorial once on this too.

Well that looks like wicked fun. Now I have to go research art tissue, because that is clearly not dollar store tissue paper... Thanks
