Default Unfinished Wood

those of you that stamp on unfinished wood products, what is the prep you need to do, if any?
Do you have to do anything to it before stamping, and/or aftering stamping?
And can you use the water color pencils?

Thanks for any info!
Michelle

Michelle - I'm glad you asked that. I am hoping to make some little boxes for gifts for Christmas and I wanted to stamp .. and possibly emboss - the tops and sides.

Carol Duvall has had lots of projects on stamping on boxes, both wood and papermache. All of her guest just seem to put a base coat on - like a primer - before they start to stamp. I have seen it done with acrylics, pigment ink and regular wall primer. I think just about anything works, you just have to check to see if it needs to be heat set before the next step. They all seem to emphasize that this is so your stamped image will not be absorbed into the raw wood / paper.
Hope this helps.

That's kind of what I thought that I would do. I thought I would do the staining and then put a coat of polyurethrane on it. We'll see if it works.

Thanks!

You can stain it and then stamp it with acrylics. Put the poly on after you are done tho. I think it might cause some problems with drying right if you poly first. You can also get a primer. This seals the wood so that the wood doesn't drink up the paint so quickly.
