Wink How Do You Stamp on Clothes

What kind of inks do you use??? Staz On??? Craft??? Do you have to use t-shirt transfer paper? How do you do it? I love it, but can't do it!

I've done it with t-shirt transfers & they work well with any kind of ink. I have also done onesieswith craft ink. There are samples in my gallery. With the craft ink you should wash the clothing first & dry without fabric softener. Then you can stamp on it with craft ink & heat set it inthe dryer for about 15-30 minutes. Don't forget to iron it to get the wrinkles out before you stamp it & put a piece of cardboard in it to give you a nice flat surface.

When you wash them don't use any bleach or stain stuff or they will wash the ink off.

Another great use for craft ink, you can stamp with craft ink on fabric as long as you heat set it with an iron or in the dryer before you wash it!!

I have stamped on onsies before my son was born. I had contacted SU about what I needed to do...

1. Wash artical of clothing- DO NOT USE FABRIC SOFTNER (Liquid or sheet)

2. Iron out any wrinkles

3. Get a peice of card board or a another heavy item to put inbetween front and back. (The ink will bleed through to the other side)

4 Hold clothing TIGHT and Stamp using a BOLD Stamp (something that doesn't have a lot of detail) and CRAFT INK.

5. Heat set with heat tool.

6. Wait another 24 hours and then wash again.

Just keep in mind that over time no matter what you use whether it be fabric paint, transfers, or craft ink it all fades. Also what I found most helpful when stamping on something that was washed A LOT (onsies) dark ink stays longer- Blues, Reds, Greens (otherwise BOLD colors). Yellows- tend to fade VERY FAST!!

HTH and have fun!!!

You can also use lumiere paint or even inexpensive acrylic paint from the craft store however paint is a lot thicker and I have only stamped with paint using the inexpensive foam stamps. Not Su. You put a little paint on a plastic plate, then use a foam brush to "paint" the surface of the stamp. Then stamp. I have stamped on a denin like cotton shirt and I have also done it on a T shirt. Worked fine both times. I was advised that the items should not be washed for a full 2 weeks. That was fine with me - easier than ironing or having to heat set in any other way.
Have fun !!
