Default Lumiere help!

So my DL and I were playing with our toys and used Lumiere directly on my stamps and now they won't come clean. I've tried Staz-On remover, I've tried Ultra Clean and nothing it working. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

What about rubbing alcohol? Or Goo-B-Gone...see if either of those work. I use Versamark on my stamps before stamping with Lumiere, that tends to protect the stamp and then I wipe the stamp with alcohol wipes. Hope that helps!

Lumiere is basically an acrylic paint, did you let it dry on the stamps inadvertently?

I would try setting the stamps on a damp paper towel for a while and then trying to rub off. Also try the Mr. Clean eraser, that thing seems to get off anything.

You could also try nail polish remover. Just don't let it get on the foam layer!

Kiss Off! No, no, no.....not like, "kiss off, Melis"! I mean the cleaner, Kiss Off. It's a miracle in a tube, lol! Michaels carries it. It's a brush cleaner, but it gets off zillions of things...

Oh, yeah....you never wanna let paint dry on the stamp....it's a you-know-what to get off!

AH, GAK, OH NO!!!! don't do this unless you are sure, sure, SURE the remover isn't acetate based! Acetate eats rubber!!!

I would try warm water and a toothbrush... Good luck!

That's what was weird about the whole thing. She kinda painted a mixture of Lumiere and reinker onto the stamp and stamped it. The stamps didn't sit for more than a minute before I went to clean 'em, 'cause I'm AR like that. We were using RIW, and what happened is that the lethal combo of chemicals set up in the nooks and crannies of the big and medium roses. The little one cleaned up pretty good.

Long story longer, she worked on them under warm water and most of it came clean. There is still a bit of sparkle to them, but they stamp OK. Lesson learned! I'll head out tomorrow for some Kiss Off and see if I can't get them cleaner.

Thanks ladies!

Hi

I have used lumiere on my stamps a fair bit will no ill effect. I suggest first before you ink up your stamp with the lumiere that you actually stamp your stamp into your versamark ink pad, this helps protect your stamp a bit. then apply the lumiere to your stamp, stamp it and then GO CLEAN IT before you do another thing!

hope that helps.
