Default Stampin' on a cast

I broke my ankle 2 weeks ago and hopefully will be getting a fiberglass cast on Wednesday. Has anyone stamped on a cast ? Someone told me it would be too porous. Any ideas or suggestions? Also should I get white or a color? I'm 51 and have never had a cast before!!!

sorry to hear of your misfortune!

i would for sure try to stamp on it.

and the color question- guess it would depend on what colors you got to choose from. you could always go with white and use your markers as well as stamps to embellish.

you could let your stamping friends decorate a little part each.

you could have so much fun!

happy stamping!

Oh Barbara, I feel for you! I broke my foot this time of the year 19 years ago (I was pregnant and couldn't be put into a cast). I wish you a speedy recovery - be careful out in the snowy/icy weather! No advice on stamping on a cast, but please post a picture if you can! All the best...

My daughter had a fiberglass cast and it was very difficult to sign because it's a mesh-like material. If you want a really good stamping surface, I would go for a plaster cast.

So, you should tell your doctor, "I need you to use the best possible casting material for stamping. It should be smooth and take ink well."

If you want to be able to get your cast wet, you need a fiberglass cast with a waterproof lining. Normally the lining isn't waterproof...it's something you would have to ask for.

Hi there
I too have never tried to stamp on a cast BUT I have stamped on white tissue,coloured as desired and then glued it to a cast with PVA(white glue).The tissue goes clearish so you mainly see the stamped image
Have fun and show us what you come up with....hope you heal up really quick

I have had a cast or two in my time, But those cast were different than the ones that they have now.
I don't think you can stamp on them. but hey try it and see if it works. then you'll know.

Sorry to hear that your broke your ankle....Ouch!!!

Take care!

You could first put a layer of Modge Podge on the cast to seal it and then have at it with a stamp or two.

When I took a One-Stroke Painting class, we had to "prepare" the mouse pad by putting a layer of Modge Podge on it. That kept the paint from soaking in.

Here's to a speedy recovery!!!

The tissue paper idea is fantastic. Now on top of the broken ankle, I have an abscessed tooth and a stomach virus. When it rains it pours. Just feeling good enough to sit and type. And if I have to chose between showering or stamping on the cast I will take the shower!

I stamped on my DS's fiber glass cast a couple of years back. He chose a red cast. I stamped with black Stazon and colored with sharpies (bugs & slugs). This one was not waterproof. The one he had when he was 2 with his broken leg was. It was lined with what looked like bubble wrap. We asked for it this last time and they knew nothing about it.

Hope you heal quickly!

Isn't it something that even when we are hurting or in pain, we think about stamping??

You can totally stamp on fiberglass casts!! The link above is my DD's cast last spring - we used StazOn but any pigment or permanent ink would work!

You obviously don't get a completely solid image, but depending on what you're looking to do, it can definitely be stamped - have fun!

I would not decoupage on a cast. It could interfere with removing it, and possibly cause problems. When I went to convention in 2005 one of the girls in our group had a hot pink cast and she hot glued daisy rick-rack around the top, it was super cute!

About the showering, they sell bags that fit over casts for this purpose. I even went swimming when I had mine on. The bag has a tight rubber seal at the top, I put a towel inside it when I went swimming to make sure no water got in. The only problem I had when I was swimming was that there was so much air in the bag that wouldn't come out that it made my foot float. If you cannot find a bag like this, ask the hospital for foam tape, wrap your leg in a towel and tape a heavy duty trash bag over your cast (secure it to the skin on your leg with the foam tape).

I have a purple cast now. Last week it was a hot pink cast. I had surgery in 4 places on my left foot. I think the green cast that kareninkali stamped was just so cute!! I love all the bright colored fiberglass casts they have now. I might try stamping on this one, would probably be cool. Thanks for the info and glad the question came up.
