Default “Pressure tool” for even inking

I’ve seen Gina K andJennifer McGuire use a tool with the Misti or large stamps to get an even impressive. Where can I buy one or how can I make it?

Thank you , Vic. From the quick peek you get of the one jennifer McGuire uses, I wondered if one could be built from felt, a wood block (like from a wood-mounted stamp)and a door knob. There are some really pretty ones at Hobby Lobby
I just haven't gotten around to trying it.

But now I'm wondering if anyone has ever tried just rolling a brayer over the closed positioner?

I have friends who use a Breyer and it works. I have seen videos where they made their own with few supplies. I use my hands, but if I had arm or hand issues, I would look Into making one.

OOh! The eraser is a good idea! The shape of it is likely kinder to the hand over time.

I remembered I had some felt pads in a recently cleared/organized junk drawer and applied them to the bottom of a wood block (from an old stamp). Works like a charm!!

I had no idea such a thing existed. Thank you so much. I went and found one I liked on Etsy. https://www.etsy.com/listing/9791326...f=yr_purchases The reviews are good. Fingers crossed.

I ordered a dry board eraser. Cheap and works. Mine is in the shape of a mini iron for better grip. I think I saw Werner using one?

I don't use a Misti or any of the other platforms. My stamps are all wood mounted, so I use the old fashioned "L" shaped block with an acrylic plate. However, I have a friend who uses her platform constantly and does amazing work by rolling over the plate with a brayer. No new tool to buy and she keeps it handy all the time.

Brayer is a good idea! Wish I had thought of it!

Some use a white board eraser. I use the back of any flat backed ink pad. This just needs to be anything you can put your hand on and give even pressure to. There are lots of things around the house and in our craft rooms that can do this, including large ink pads (if they are flat), large acrylic stamp blocks, the wooden blocks we have leftover from when we took stamps off of them...etc.

I have an original "Chuckie" tool coming like Gina's. I tried a dry eraser because I already had one, but it didn't work for me.

I agree that things we have on hand will work. Attaching felt or something soft on the boom will help it slide easier (and, I guess, keep a hard object from scratching the positioning tool?).

Meant to say but it’s fun that there are options out there.

I was thinking the same thing. Nice thick felt. Dont want to scratch up the door to the MISTI or whatever.

Default Under Pressure

To my eye the stamping tool looks to be a cookie press with felt or some type of thick material on it.
I has several cookie presses that I purchased at a deep discount. The came with removable silicone covers with different raised prints on them.
I used it as a large stamp!
Now, I'll try out making it a "pressure" tool!

I have arthritis in my hands and fingers that seems to be flaring a lot more often (thank you getting older!) So when i saw one of the YouTubers using a dry erase tool I decided to try it…picked one up at my local Dollar Tree and works like a charm.
I’ve since seen many different tools out now for getting even pressure with the Misti but my problem is grabbing something without my hand hurting. I like the dry eraser shape for that very reason. And it was super cheap!
