WHAT IS RUBBER STAMPING ???????

HI MY ALL BLOGGER FRIENDS,
TODAY'S POST IS INFORMATIVE. TODAY I AM TRYING TO GIVE ANSWERS OF SOME OF YOU'R QUESTIONS ON RUBBER STAMPING. AS I SAY "I TEACH RUBBER STAMPING" MOST OF YOU ASK ME

  • WHAT IS RUBBER STAMPING? 
  • WHAT WE CAN DO WITH THAT? 
  • IS MATERIAL EASILY AVAILABLE HERE?
  •  DID WE NEED TO DO A LOT'S OF INVESTMENTS IN THIS?  
AND SO ON.. SO HERE IS YOU'R ANSWERS
RUBBER STAMPING IS A CRAFT LIKE OTHER CRAFTS i.e. PUNCH-CRAFT , PAPER QUILLING AND OTHERS. AND YES WE HAVE SOME TECHNIQUES IN THIS CRAFT AS WELL. WE CAN MAKE CARDS,ENVELOPS, SCRAPBOOKS, MINI ALBUMS, FRAMES, etc. AND ANYTHING YOU WANT TO DECORATE. YOU NEED RUBBER STAMPS,INKS FOR THIS CRAFT. YES MATERIAL YOU NEED IS EASILY AVAILABLE IN INDIA ALL THE ONLINE CRAFT SHOPS ARE CARRYING ALL THE NECESSARY MATERIAL. FOR START THIS CRAFT YOU NEED SOME STAMPS AND FEW INK PADS THAT'S IT. AS YOU'R INTEREST INCRESE YOU CAN BUY NEW STAMPS AND INKS AND ALL FUN PRODUCTS.
        RUBBER STAMPS ARE AVAILABLE IN WOOD MOUNT, CLING, CLEAR STAMPS.


CLING STAMPS
YOU NEED TO MOUNT THESE STAMPS ON ACRYLIC BLOCKS FOR CRISP IMPRESSIONS. SOME OF COMPANY'S MAKE THIS KIND OF STAMPS 




WOOD MOUNT 
THIS KIND OF STAMPS ARE MOUNT ON WOOD PIECE. FOR THIS STAMPS YOU DON'T NEED ACRYLIC BLOCKS. THESE STAMPS NEED MORE SPACE FOR STORAGE. BUT THEY GIVE YOU NICE CRISP IMAGE EVERY TIME.



CLEAR ACRYLIC STAMP
NOW A DAYS MOST OF THE COMPANY'S ARE MAKING THIS KIND OF STAMPS. THEY ARE CLEAR ACRYLIC STAMPS SO YOU CAN ACTUALLY SEE WHERE AND HOW YOU'R IMAGE IS GOING TO BE ON YOU'R PROJECT. THIS STAMPS YOU NEED TO PLACE ON CLEAR ACRYLIC BLOCKS. YOU CAN STORE THESE STAMPS IN A SMALL PLACE.

INKS
FOR STAMPS YOU NEED INKS. AS STAMPS THERE ARE SEVERAL TYPES ARE AVAILABLE IN INKS AS WELL.DIE INKS, DISTRESS INKS, PIGMENT INKS, CHALK INKS

DIE INKS:- THESE INKS ARE DRY QUICKLY. AND THESE ARE WATER BASE THAT MEANS IF YOU USE WATER WITH THEM THEY WILL GIVE YOU NICE WATERCOLOR EFFECT.AND THEY GIVES YOU SOLID CRISP IMAGES. MEMENTO INKS ARE DIE INKS SO THEY ARE PERFECT FOR COPIC MARKERS AS COPIC MARKERS ARE ALCOHOL BASE SO THEY WORK FINE WITH MOMENTO.IF YOU MIX MOMENTO WITH WATER BASE COLOR PENCILS THEY WILL MERGE EACH OTHER BUT COPIC ARE ALCOHOL BASE SO THEY WON'T MERGE EACH OTHER. YOU CAN USE WATER BASE COLOR PENCILS WITH STAZON INKS AS STAZON INKS ARE ALCOHOL BASE BUT YOU CAN'T USE STAZON WITH COPIC. AS WELL STAZON DRY FAST SO YOU CAN USE THEM ON TRANSPARENT SHEET OR ON GLOSSY SURFACE.ANY OTHER INKS WON'T DRY ON THESE SURFACES. 




 DISTRESS INKS:- OTHER TYPE IS DISTRESS INKS THESE INKS ARE ALSO DIE INKS BUT THESE INKS ARE HAVING A DIFFERENT PROPERTY WHICH KEEP IT WAIT FOR A LONG TIME SO IT'S EASY FOR BLENDING. THESE INKS WON'T GIVE YOU CRISP IMAGE THE IMPRESSION OF IMAGE IS LITTLE BIT OF BLOTCHY WHICH REALLY GO'S WITH DISTRESS THEME BUT ISN'T EXACTLY SAME AS ANY OTHER DIE INKS OUT THERE.

PIGMENT INKS:- PIGMENT  INKS ARE KIND OF OIL BASE AND THEY TAKE A LONG TIME TO DRY AND THEY WON'T GET OFF EASILY ON YOU'R FINGER. THESE INKS GIVES YOU OPAQUE EFFECT. I DON'T USE THESE INKS B'COZ OF DRYING PERIOD. THESE INKS ARE AVAILABLE IN SMALL SIZE INK PADS AS WELL REGULAR SIZE INK PADS.

CHALK INKS:-  CHALK INKS ARE BASICALLY GIVES YOU SAME THICKNESS OPAQUE EFFECT AS PIGMENT INKS BUT THEY DRY LITTLE BIT QUICKER.




ACRYLIC BLOCKS:- THESE ARE ACRYLIC BLOCKS. ACRYLIC MEANS A HARD KIND OF PLASTIC. THEY ARE AVAILABLE WITH ALL CRAFT SHOPS. OR YOU CAN MAKE THEM FROM ANY LOCAL SHOP OF ACRYLIC.YOU CAN USE SAME BLOCK FOR VARIOUS STAMPS AND PLAIN ACRYLIC BLOCK FOR SOME STAMPING TECHNIQUE.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTION REGARDING THIS PLEASE COMMENT ON THIS POST I'LL HAPPY TO  ANSWER ALL YOU'R QUESTION.
