Default TH's Distress Oxides

Has anyone tried them? What do you like/dislike about them?


I doubt I will add them to my ink pad collection, especially as a full size pads. I can create a similar effect with products I already have.

After watching Jennifer McGuire use them, I think I NEED a few!

Better watch Jennifer before you decide.

Thanks for sharing the video... she used beautiful color combinations.
If/when they come out in mini sets like the distress I may give them a try, but for now I'll use Colorbox chalk cat eyes which are a dye/pigment ink.

I think Jennifer said they won't be coming out in minis. Can't remember why. I plan to get a shade of green, blue, pink and yellow if I can find them.

If there's a market for the minis and money to be made, he'll come out with the minis... it could be next year or the year after...remember how they rolled out the distress inks.

I really liked the look Jennifer got from the blending sponges - and that you are able to correct things when you press too hard with the sponge. I use the Clarity brushes in place of light sponging, but they are too time-consuming when you want to create some intense color blending.

I'll wait awhile, I guess - got too much on my plate right now, anyway. It would be good to see lots of independent bloggers' take on them.


I rather wish Ranger had differed the label/shape look of the pads and re-inkers more; it is way too easy to mix up a regular Distress with an Oxide.

It looks like the oxides cases are gray instead of black. So I wouldn't think they'd get mixed up too easily.

The pad cases are gray & the re-inkers are squeeze bottles, not the glass dropper bottles (they need to be shaken).

I have them and agree with GypsyRoseStamper that Jennifer's video should be watched before deciding either way. They have some unique properties

I talked about them so much in another thread, that instead of repeating, here's the link: http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...s-t616062.html

I got them and LOVE them!!!! They are totally different than the regular distressed inks. Much easier to use, much easier to blend and you don't get "muddy" colors. They are great.

TH said at CHA that they would not be coming out with minis in these as they need the full pad to get the mix of inks that they use (it is a mix of pigment and dyed). Now will that change down the road...no idea, just repeating what he said in the video and why.

I would say if you like to do inking techniques, or if you have distressed inks and have a hard time with them, these are for you!!!!

I like the chalky/suede/velvet finish much better than the splotchy finish. Loving that you can blend out harsh lines. Might add a few colors to the wish list... but some of my favorite colors aren't in this formulation (yet) so waiting won't be too hard.

Jennifer said they wouldn't be mini because of the mix of ink used to make them. Only time will tell what they decide to do.

I ordered 2 just so I can test as I'm not sure they are going to be all that different than my other pigment & chalk inks. Who knows, I may love them.

[Sorry, this post is in response to StampHappy1650's post, two above this one.]

I hope you post your reactions. I've found them quite different, I assume partly because they're a dye/pigment combo. That's not to say I don't like my pigment inks - I very much do, especially a couple brands. And for some applications either could be used.

The easy blending blows me away, as does the ability to layer to get more opaque coverage of a single color - kind of paint like - or complementary colors on top of each other when dry without making browns.

Are you talking about the mixed media look and effects from large water drops? If so, you might want to watch Jennifer McGuire's video starting around 18 minutes I think? They can be used for CAS, blending without water like regular Distress inks, but giving more opacity, layering, etc.

I have a feeling that if someone saw a finished CAS card, box, etc., made with these inks and had never seen Tim's video or examples, it wouldn't dawn on them the inks came from Tim and his more messy mixed media method. Maybe.

I have always been one of those who have troubles blending the distress inks so I definitely want to get an ink pad or two. Jennifer McGuire makes it look so easy!!

If you only stamp, then probably not for you, although they stamp soooo much better than his distress inks! I'm hooked just watching Jennifer's video. It truly does look like you can go wrong any way you use them! I hope they get released to stores. I want a green, blue, pink and yellow. I think I can do what I need with those four colors (to start! LOL)

I don't think she used them the best for what they can do, but it was cute. I do like that she used the Misti to line up the panel on the front. I never thought about doing that before.

Jennifer's video showcased them best, I think, with layering them over each other and using water.

I also scrapbook and work in art journals. I don't use my Distress Inks for stamping. I use them for making backgrounds, stenciling, and inking edges. I still don't think I'd like them, but I wouldn't mind trying them out if I got a chance. I just wouldn't buy them without trying them first - even if Jennifer McGuire can get them to look great.

Kathy, after watching Jennifer's and especially Ilina's video that's just before your post?
If I only stamped, Oxides would still be for me. Why? Blending is easier; more opacity is an option; they stamp better than regular Distress inks; they still can be used for watercolor techniques. In fact, if I had to choose between regular Distress or Oxide I think I'd go with Oxide. And I love my regular Distress inks.

(I don't tend to do messy mixed media or vintage looks, other than once in a blue moon I'll take a workshop to get me out of my comfort zone.)

Jennifer's video was great - and encyclopedic! Plus it was fun seeing her so enthused. What I like about Ilana's is it showed that Oxides could be used for regular stamping, which many/most (?) people don't do with regular Distress inks.

And I kind of swooned over the bird layering. I'm not generally into the layered stamp trend, but for the bird stamp with Oxides, I'd gladly make an exception. Of course she did use two of my favorite Distress colors, so that may have influenced me.

I have 20 distress inks now. I am going to wait now and get oxides! I'm quite excited about them. I haven't been this excited to try a new product since my misti!

I think this may be the most excited I've been over any product? Oh wait, the arrival of my Carl cutter was a monumental moment. I opened it in the kitchen and started cutting everything - even those little rubber mat things you use to open jars.

I'm going out today to get some reinkers. That's how I know how into them I am. I never buy reinkers until I need them. Worn lipstick here I come.

I've used my Distress inks for stamping only if stuck for a color. The Oxides stamp so much better. Now they don't dry as fast as dye inks, of course, so that could be a factor for some people. In her video, Ilana was giving a zap with her heat tool in between layers.

Oxide reinkers? Where are you finding them? I was to Michaels this morning and they only had distress pads and not even any reinkers for those.

Stamping a small solid leaf stamp (ovalish with pinched ends), there was very good coverage, kind of paint like, and 2nd and 3rd generation stamping worked, though the third was very faint. No water was used.

I also stamped the leaf in cracked pistachio, then stamped worn lipstick angled on top. As expected, they didn't make mud, though they're complements. What was not expected, was a lovely translucence. You clearly can see the red on top and the green underneath. Actually, it's a little hard to tell which is on top.


Maybe it was partly caused by the cheap card stock, with some of the dye portion of the ink absorbed into the paper. I'll try it on other papers. So nice!

Thanks for posting the video. I'm enjoying them all! I think the video maker meant crystallized, not fossilized.

Yes. Still not my thing, though, and that's OK. Not everyone will like everything, and that's OK too.

It's great that you know what works for you and don't need to jump on the latest,greatest bandwagon!

Affter watching half a dozen videos, I don't think most show some unique properties - like being able to stamp two colors on top of each other and where they overlap, seeing both colors at the same time, a translucence. In fact after stamping, you couldn't tell which was stamped first: worn lipstick or cracked pistachio.

I stamped a solid oval-ish leaf, turned the stamp slightly, and stamped in the second color. The first time was with complementary colors that normally go to mud.

If one wants opacity it's there. But the translucence was lovely and unexpected, and different than with watercolors or dye inks.

Blending was easier; I'm a bad blender. The solid stamp images reminded me of paint. And it did 2nd and 3rd generation stamping, though 3rd was very light.

This is giving my all time favorite product (embossing powder) a run for its money. But one size does not fit all. Like ice cream; which flavor is best? (Vanilla, please.)
