Default distress ink on foil c.s.

I am not able to craft right now, but I had the thought of using some kind of ink on shiny gold c.s. to tone down the shininess when I get around to crafting again, that is. I have a gold diecut of a deer so I was thinking of "browning" it up a bit. I was thinking distress ink or distress paint or distress stain. Would any of those work? Or is only alcohol ink suitable on the shiny metallic c.s.? Or other kinds of inks?

TIA

I think Distress Paint should work as you can use it on metal embellishments, I suspect it’s basically an acrylic paint. Distress ink and stain will most likely just slide off/bead up and won’t dry. You’re right that Stazon or any of the alcohol-based markers would also be an option.

Have fun when you get back to crafting!

I used alcohol markers to try to color areas of a metallic cardstock and it just took the finish off, so you might want to spot-test first. Pigment ink might work... I'm guessing that this will be a trial-and-error type of situation. Let us know if/when you get a chance to test it out!

Shirl, aside from adding color, have you considered roughing the surface? I found (by accident) that when I was rubbing out fingerprints on some mirror board, I got a duller surface with some texture lines. Emery boards, fine sandpaper, sanding blocks, kitchen scrubbies, lots of ways to rub out the shine. Personally, I LOVE the shine! I am in a major mirror board addiction right now.I'm die cutting stuff from mirror board with all my new dies! Yay!

Good point - Brilliance works on non-porous surfaces. It does take quite a while to dry but it does eventually. I guess if you were sponging on a thin application it might dry faster. I havenít found another pigment ink that dries on that kind of surface but there could be one out there!

I love Patís idea of roughing up the surface!

I tried making a card using a 3D embossing folder then rubbing on black distress paint to make it look like old metal. Tim Holtz made a video and I wanted to replicate it. He used Silver paper from the ranger line, but all I had was one piece of silver cardstock (had forever don't know the brand) which worked like a charm and some mirror cardstock and foil cardstock, which failed miserably. The paint dries fast and becomes sticky so there is no moving it around or wiping some of it away. So I would test a small piece of whatever you try.

Archival ink works well for me.

After slightly distressing the surface, maybe paste wax would work.
