Default Pigment Ink Pads

I just bought some "Avery Elle" pigment ink pads, I stamped a background last night, but this morning it still feel a little "sticky". I am afraid it will still smudge if you rub on it. Will heat setting help it dry?

Any suggestions?

Hi, yes indeed heat setting will dry the ink. Almost all pigment inks will need heat setting, as they are really intended to use with embossing powders, then heat set to produce a raised, shiny finish. If not embossed, they will pretty much never dry on most surfaces.

I think it might depend on your weather (humidity, dryness etc.) because I've never had a problem getting pigment ink to dry. I also look for "quick drying" pigment inks and I make sure not to work on them right after stamping. I usually use ordinary card stock, not coated papers, too.

I've never had to heat set any of my pigment inks and for many years pigment ink was all I ever used. I too use regular cardstock but a friend used Versafine on my recommendation and it kept smearing; but she used a coated cardstock.

I moved this to our Tool & product talk forum where it might get more input.

I usually heat set pigment inks, but I also use a coated cardstock, as Diane mentioned.

I never heat set my pigment inks either, if I use uncoated cardstock. If you use coated or glossy cardstock, you will have to do that, unless you emboss (which, of course, also requires heat).
