Default What Dominoes to buy to stamp on?

I have done a search but cannot find one that people talk about the specific dominoes they use to stamp on.

Where do you find them? Do you use the "ceramic" ones or plastic?

Many thanks

Blessings,

Ciebelle

When you say plastic, you are not talking about the heavy ones that come in a metal tin?

yep, those are the ones I get. they are at Wal-Mart for about $4 in a tin. I don't think the plastic ones would be good for stamping on

I've bought Dominoes at Wal-mart in the tin's.

A friend of mine shared some information with me.

Take your dominoes and soak them in Bleach. This will take off the coating on the dominoes and will make them easier to stamp on.

The finish will be like mat finish. Not super smooth.

I have a container that I only use for doing this in. and I soak them overnight.

Take them out and dry them off and I keep them in another container this way I will know that they have been soaked and ready to use.

Check out "Altered Game Pieces" tutorial under Resources/projects!
I have some from a very old game set, but I picked some up at Joann's in the jewelry section - some were already drilled which is great if you are using them for jewelry items.

I used dominoes from toys r us and I also used ones I found in a google search of dominoes that are slighty larger than the one that you can find in the stores for kids games and they are white with black dots only, not the multi color dots that seem to be what they use for the kids games today. Two of my toys r us dominoes were published in the Rubber Stamper a few months ago. I just gave a slight buff with a sanding block and stamped with staz on.

I have just sanded the smooth side with the sanding blocks from SU and then stamped on them with Stazon--works great!
