Default What Ink for glossy paper?

Advice please for sponging and stamping on glossy paper. My searches are not turning up anything.

Tim Holtz taught an Archival Resist in one of the Creative Chemistry classes. You stamp with Archival and then blend over it with Distress in any color or colors you want. The Archival will resist the Distress and shine through. It looks awesome with a light color of Archival, like Viridian.

Dye inks work well on glossy paper. They might take a few minutes to dry, though. Pigment inks will not dry without being embossed.

It would depend, they are not all made the same. Some glossy brands actually have a clay based coating on the surface and will absorb some pigment ink. My best advice is to play to see what works for you, it's only paper and ink. Then you can make purchases based on your own experiences.

I saw a video on Youtube using Tim Holtz oxide inks. Smush the ink on the clear acrylic blocks used for stamps. Spritz with water and hold face down on glossy paper (photo paper works too) set a heavy object on it for 5 minuted then take off and let dry. it will look awful but take a paper towel and rub off the residue and WOW!!!!! Tim Holtz distress ink works well too.

I get great results on glossy cardstock using the old Adirondack Dye inks, so I'd say any dye ink should give you good results. Stampinstacys advice is great advice. The thing with inks, and cardstock, is that the results can vary hugely from brand to brand, and even the same brand of ink can give different results on different cardstock. And vice versa. It's worth trying things out for yourself, and maybe making notes on the back of the swatches about exactly what brand of ink &cardstock was used, for later reference.

I wonder how Staz-On Opaque (not regular Staz-On) would do, depending on the type of glossy paper. I was looking at a beautiful inked sample on clear acetate today. I never use regular Staz-On but may try the Opaque, which is advertised for non-porous surfaces.

Hi BJeans, from personal experience, I'd say 'Don't do it' lol. I bought some of the Opaque Staz-on when they first launched, and I hate them with a vengeance. The ink is really, really thick and sticky.I've had to throw one away, as the inner plastic lid stuck to the ink on the foam, and tore when I tried to open it. The pad comes with a refill bottle, which you will need to use every time you use the pad. It does work just like the traditional Staz-on, on all porous surfaces, but they are paler colours. I bought the pale blue, pink & Buttercream, as I thought they'd be good for baby cards, but I'd rather use normal inks with heat embossing on heat proof acetate. Just my opinion, btw.

Hey Shaz - how interesting - and ughy - thanks. The sample on acetate at the LSS was delicate and beautiful. They also used regular Staz-On on acetate to show the difference. Regular looked bad. I'm going back in the next couple days and will ask what they did.

Staz-On indicates Opaque is for non-porous surfaces, which goes along with how it was used at the LSS on acetate:
  • Opaque inks were designed for and best results are achieved on non-porous surfaces such as acetate, acrylic, metal, leather, shrink plastic, cellophane, plastic, etc.
Since some glossy paper is non-porous, just wondered. Some interesting reviews on Amazon and an example or two. Some don't like it, some do.

I wonder if the ink has since been improved? As I said, I got them when they first launched, which must be about 10 years ago now, so it's quite possible they have done things to the consistency in that time. They seem to dry out between uses, which is how I had one ruined.

Good question. I'll be visiting another LSS, and if Opaque Staz-On is there, I'll ask. I've never noticed what, if any, Staz-On they have since I don't use the regular and didn't know about Opaque until I saw the acetate samples.

It's a little iffy asking inky questions at the first LSS. Sadly, they're going out of business, and are swamped with customers literally buying everything, including the fixtures. But I might be taking a last class there with an ink guru, and if so I bet she'd know.

Thats cool. I would be interested to find out if it is better these days, I might be tempted to try a new one if it is a better product.
