Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Kay asked: "I have tried to stamp on paint chips and have found the ink does not dry - is there a drying time which I haven't allowed for? I got my paint chips from Dutch Boy - is there a special type of ink I should be using? At this time I'm using a stamp pad from Close to My Heart."
A: Since the paint chips have a glossy or slick finish, you will need to use solvent inks like Stazon. You could also emboss the inks you are using with clear embossing powder.
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Barbara has a suggestion for the Silk Clay tutorial: "You can make your own air drying clay called cold porcelain clay. Just google cold porcelain clay recipes. It is extremely easy and cost effective using corn flour and glue and a few other things. Use the microwave recipe as this is the easiest method. I make loads of embellishments at once and leave them to air dry for about a week. However you must seal your clay with a decopauge sealer to protect it."
