Default Is there a way....

to use markers on acrylic stamps so that the ink doesn't pool.

I don't know. Maybe if you scribble the marker on another acrylic block and the use it as a stamp pad? Really I haven't a clue but I can bump this for you.

The other day I saw where someone swore by stamping with Versamark first and then they used their SU classic pads. I have never had any trouble with any ink on clear stamps, but haven't tried the markers yet. Maybe if you used a Versamark pen first or stamped with a Versamark pad first?? Dunno. Good luck!!

I am not sure if this is the right technique or not, but here is what I do and it works every time. First I take the fine side of an emery board, or very smooth sandpaper, they also make sanding blocks for this purpose. Go over the entire stamps gently. Then I take and eraser and go over the stamp in all 4 directions. Then I wash my stamp in soapy water and rinse well. Let fully dry and you should be good to go. Works like a charm for me every time. Just used this method last night to stamp some images for a swap that I am in. They turned out beautifully. Give it a try. If someone else Knows a better technique, please chime in, I would be interested to know also.

Have a happy stamping day!

Honestly I've never been able to get great results with markers directly on a clear stamp, not like you get with rubber. But if you don't mind a more water colored look try coloring on the clear stamp with the markers then spritzing with a water bottle and a few fine sprays of water, it works nicely but it is very blended and looks very watercolor-ey

I use markers on my clear stamps all the time. The stamps must be "seasoned" by roughing them up a bit (I ink them up with any pad then stamp and rub on cardstock). Then they stamp perfectly fine with SU markers. A bit stained, though!

I tried this with one of my clear Inkadinkado stamps and it cracked while I was using the eraser to season the stamp, thus ruining it. So, I just stamp my clear stamps onto a Versamark pad first, then apply SU Classic ink to it. I would think that it would work with the markers as well.

That is probably the fault of the stamp, not you. I am so not impressed with the quality of clear or rubber stamps from this company. They do offer lots of cute images but I'd rather spend my money on better quality and have no trouble like ripping and ink pooling. Try a different brand of stamps and you will probably be satisfied with how they ink and stamp and last a long time. JMO (based on first-hand experience).

I stamp in VersaMark and then color on the acrylic with SU! markers. You can NOT color on any stamps with Copics, as they are NOT waterbased like SU! markers.
