Question Brilliance Ink vs. Stazon Ink

Hi all! I am stamping an image on a highly glossy (plastic) surface that I then want to color with my copics.

I originally thought to use Stazon since it won't smear on the plastic... but I know it doesn't work well for copics. So I wanted to stamp in Brilliance so my copics won't smear the image... but will the Brilliance ink dry?

I can't heat set it since it will melt the plastic, and I don't have the luxury of "testing" it since I only have one item and don't want to ruin it.

Does anyone have experience with this? Any tips?

Is your glossy surface clear? If yes, stamp the stazon on one side, flip it over and color with the copics on the other side. I haven't stamped brilliance on plastic so I don't know but it does dry on photos and glossy paper.

That's my best suggestion too. I've used Stazon on shrink plastic and it works fine with Copics, so long as they're not on the same side... You can also try coloring the image on the non-Stazon side and then going back and stamping on top of the coloring with Stazon to make the image stand out more.

Hmmm, that won't work for this particular project, but it is really good advice for the future! I will keep it in mind.

I tried an experiment last night: I stamped my image in Brilliance ink onto a clear, glossy transparency yesterday and let it sit overnight. This morning it is permanent and won't smear or rub off, so I am hopeful that the Brilliance ink will also dry and remain permanent on the plastic. I stamped it this morning and will see how it looks tomorrow - I'll keep you posted! Thanks ladies-

Although Brilliance will dry on your surface, the solvent in the Copics will tend to wipe it off. You might get away with it if you're really, really careful with how you colour up to the lines but then there's no advantage to the Brilliance over the Stazon, it's just a case of keeping the two separate by a whisker. Try a colouring experiment on your transparency test piece is my best advice. Good luck!

I've heat-set Brilliance on ordinary non heat-proof acetate with just a hair dryer. But I'd say Joanne is right that even when it's heat-set, the alcohol in the Copics would lift it again.
