    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Alice asks: "I would like to stamp on cork coasters. What ink should I use?"
    A: Stazon Pigment ink would be my first choice - it's permanent and waterproof when dry, but also a bit opaque, so it will show up nicely on the cork. A hybrid ink would work well too, or any ink that can be heat set to permanence - Versafine, archival, craft ink, and Memento Luxe are a few that come to mind.

    Julie is excited about the Embossed Wood Pendants tutorial: "I love how simple and quick this necklace is to make, and so charming. I especially love the knotting for the adjustable length. Thank you so much!"
