Question Coloured Soot Stamping Question

Hi everyone,

I've got a bit of an urgent question regarding Coloured Soot Stamping. I'm demonstrating this technique on the weekend, but when I spray my stamped soot with acrylic sealer, the acrylic sealer is leaving spots on the glossy card stock. It is removing spots of soot detracting from my image I created in the soot from my stamp set.

Does anyone have any idea how to stop this...PLEASE....I'm desperate!

Cheers,

are you spraying from a distance or right up close? is the nozzle partly plugged making it spray goofy? those are the only 2 reasons i can think of. ive havent had that happen before i spray about 6 inches away and back and forth in like a sweeping motion if that makes sense

Thanks Ann,

I'll try not to spray as close...perhaps that's the problem.

ok I am having trouble with this technique. When I have the paper sooted up (is that a word?) I then go and stamp the image and it doesn't show up. What am I doing wrong? Could it be what I thought was glossy cardstock is not? Or is it something else?

you do need a good solid stamp and I found I got a better soot removal if I twisted the stamp ever so slightly. This card didn't get complete removal, but you can see its better on the more solid parts. HTH

It's been a couple of years since I did this. I went back and reviewed the instructions. My first thought is that the paper might have been too close to the flame. It could be that the paper is actually scorched rather than just sooty. I remember watching very carefully so the paper was just at the fraction of an inch where the flame stops and the smoke begins.

And you could be partially right about the cardstock. It should be really glossy on one side of the paper -- similar to photo paper.

There are four cards in my gallery.
Aster in Soot and Much Happiness are the two best examples.

Unlike Diane's technique, I used line images and did not twist the stamp.
