Using Basic Black--- Runs???

Everytime I use the Basic Black stamp pad and want to color it in with whatever the black runs, even tho I let it dry. I am not using craft stamp either!! Boo Hoo what can I do to stop this? Do I always have to use stays on??? Thanks.

Maybe you could talk to your demo about having it replaced. I use Basic Black often, even with watercolors, and it doesn't run. I love my Basic Brown too. Hope you can get it resolved

Either use Stazon or you can emboss the black before you color your image.

I've never had a problem with my basic black running! It's been fabulous so far....I would, as well, suggest seeing your demo about having it replaced...that just doesn't sound like it was a good pad!

Are you using SU paper? SU only claims their black is waterproof on their own Whisper White and Very Vanilla paper. I have used it on the Georgia Pacific paper with out any trouble either.

If you are using WW or VV and it's still running, then I'd contact your demo for a replacement.

I've never had problems with basic black or basic brown running, and I've used it on all brands of paper... contact your demo she'll be able to help you out ~

Me, too...I have been using Staz On exclusively for a while...I rarely use the Basic Black..only sometime for a sentiment inside the card...I feel like the Staz on is more of a "true black"? Am I crazy??

What are you watercoloring with?

I had this problem ONLY with Watercolor Crayons -- I used ink pads/reinkers and watercolor pencils without any problem, but had to use StazOn with the WWC. However, I don't use the SU Whisper White paper, either. My demo suggested that might be the problem.

Thanks for all of the advice. I only use SU paper and it doesn't seem to make a difference as I have tried it on cheaper paper. I am going to use Staz-On from now on as the stamp pad is not new and I know that I will not be getting a new one from my demo. I used to be a demo and had complained about this and nothing was done, told pad had to be returned with in a certain time frame.

I've had the same problems with all types of paper and got the same response from a demo I used to have. I've taken to embossing some thing, but I hadn't thought of the staz-on (I only use that for stamping my catalogs) so I could try that too.

If you get your CS too wet the Basic Black will run a little. I suggest for watercoloring (especially with the aquapainters) to use StazOn.

I know you want to get your Basic Black fixed...now that you have it. But, if you are ever looking for a great, all purpose black...its Palette ink's Noir. You can watercolor and use gamsol with absolutely no running. No waiting time, embossing or heat gun! I think it smells alot less than Stazon!

My BB runs too. I don't emboss it though. I think I will be trying that if I know I am going to watercolor.
