Default What coloring mediums can I use on Acetate?

I am doing up some window cards for my sister and I would like to know what I can use to color in the images once I stamp them. I was also wondering how well the Memento inks work for stamping on acetate? Thanks in advance for your help.

I don't think Memento ink will work on acetate. Palette ink might work since it's a hybrid ink, but I'm not sure on that one.

You can stamp with StazOn and then color with Copics on the reverse side. If you color on the same side, you'll foul up your Copics and lose your stamped image lines.

You can color first with alcohol inks and then stamp over it with a solid image using an Archival black ink. If you immediately wipe over it, it will remove the alcohol inks and you'll be left with a clear image.

You can paint the acrylic with with acrylic paint and then stamp over it, though I'm not sure about coloring the image. Perhaps more acrylic paints/markers would work?

Alternately you can stamp on paper, color it, and adhere it to the acrylic and then cut windows or whatever for a cool look.

Hah. Now I want to grab some acrylic and play!

I agree with Kathy that perhaps stamping with stazon and then flipping will give you the best results. If you don't have copics I bet sharpies would work they come in a decent variety of colors. Also perhaps Adirondack re-inkers and you could kinda paint with them.

I have Copic's so I will try them. Is there anything that will work to give a watercolor effect to the image?

Sharpies have also been a popular coloring tools for acetate.
