This silver ink is STILL drying and I stamped the teapot this morning! The polka dots are circles of various colors of cs. I wish I had such a cheerful teapot in my kitchen. Maybe MotherMark will stop in and view my polka dotted teapot??
Thanks for viewing and commenting.

Kathy, what an awesome teapot you've created! Fabulous work, girlfriend. It is, indeed, cheerful and fun. Now where is that Muddermark .. she's gotta' see this! It will make her smile for sure!!!
Did you try hitting that slow-drying metallic ink with your heatgun yet? Seems to work for me. I dyed a huge lot of hemp twine with metallic ink one time and had to use my blowdryer! Pretty safe to say that's the last time I'll be doing that ...

I'm so glad I've never had any of the trouble I read of with Encore metallics drying! Hope it's dry by now, because this is such a lovely teapot it would be a shame for it to be sitting on the shelf for too long.
