Smile Questions about Stazon inks...

I heard that Stazon inks can damage your clear stamps. Is this true?
I've been using the versamark stamp first, then the Stazon, will this prevent damage?
Can you heatset Stazon ink? Will it dry faster or better that way?
I've read on here that it is good for watercoloring, but not for markers. What have you used the Stazon ink with?
What info can you share with me about the stazon ink? Any feedback appreciated. Thanks!!!
Another reason I started using the versamark first with Stazon, is that I heard the Stazon cleaner was bad for clear stamps, and the versamark makes it possible to clean without any harsh cleaners.

my first tip is thsat staz on is often over used and totally unnecessary. i use it with my clear stamps no problem but since i only use it when needed it is not that often. staz on is for stamping on a slick surface - glass, acetate, metal, plastic. otherwise there are other, better, easier options for inks. what is it you are wanting to do with it?

Well, most of my stamping is just on paper, so I probably don't even need them. I was wanting to use them for watercolor pencils and watercrayon coloring. The other mediums I use are Sharpies, Bic markers, Prismacolor pencils with Goo Gone or Baby Oil, Marvy Plume brush markers, Stamp inks with blender pens etc.. I guess I could always stamp with my Momento ink or CTMH inks and then emboss them with clear ink and heat set them; maybe that would work with the watercolors. I also have some Matte Finish spray, or I could get some Fixatif spray. That might work also.
I have like four Stazon stamp pads that I haven't even opened yet. Maybe I could offer them up on a trade later. Already put my Coluzzle stuff up for trade, as I am reorganizing my tiny room and parting with the stuff I don't use as much.

Memento is great for Copics, but not watercolor. (Any alcohol based marker like Copic, sharpie, etc.)

For watercolor, I like India Ink - but don't use this with Copics. (Any water based coloring medium, like blender pens, watercolor, normal markers)

ranger's archival ink is REALLY good for water based coloring. and it is the same simple clean up as any other dye ink. for markers emmento is the best.
