    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: MRS JJSz asks: "I've decided to take my roller stamps off the wheel. I have seen many videos about taking them off but nothing clear about how to store them once they are off the wheel. Do you have any suggestions?"
    A: My suggestion would be to mount them on cling foam and store them either on plastic sheets or laminated panels. There are a couple of different style EZ Mount panels which are punched for storage in a binder system. That system would work well to keep the long border stamps together. I use 20 mil weight clear (PVC) report covers for storing my cling-mounted stamps in clear plastic boxes - that system has worked very well for me for the last 4 years.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Cindy has a tip for the Scrape Painting tutorial: "Love this! Can't wait to try it! I've got plenty of paint and old credit cards...thinking maybe my Lazy Susan will make the turning easier. Thanks for sharing."
