    Ask Beate
    Beate Johns answers your technique questions
    Q: Halley asked: "I am going to be using StazOn on acetate paper. What is the best way to clean my stamps when using StazOn?
    A: I use StazOn Cleaner for it. There are other cleaners out there, though, that remove tough ink just as well. We have several threads about this in our forum already.
    Here is one of them.

    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Tamara has a suggestion for the paper bow tutorial: "I came up with measurements for a mini bow. Instead, cut one 1/2" by 2" strip of paper. Cut eight 1/2" by 3" strips of paper, and four 1/2" by 2 1/2" strips of paper. The bow will be about 1/4 the size of the original."
