Default Stamping on wood....

Thought this might be of some use...

I just finished up a stroage bench for my daughters on the bottom part I used acrylic paint and foam stamps but for the bar across the back I used my Alphabet Appeal letters with Black Staz-on to stamp a quote about sisters - i then took my flower stamp from Teenie Tinies and stamped around the quote using just my classic inks.

Then I used my heat gun and "set" the letters and flowers (being careful not to get to close or stay in one place for to long or else the paint would begin to melt and bubble) I then made sure it was laying flat and sprayed with Krylon fixif spray and it worked wonderfully.

After it was dry I rubbed and rubbed and rubbed but everything was sealed....

Just thought I would pass this along to anyone who might want to use classic inks to stamp on wood (like a wooden frame or box) - I think the biggest thing is to heat set it and make sure it is flat when you spray....
