There are a few little tips and tricks that I've learned over time. You can make sure you get lovely clear images by looking after your My Acrylix stamps in the following way. Plus, as always, practise makes perfect - you'll find that the more you use them the better you will get.
Straight out of its packet, your acrylic stamp (especially a large one) doesn't give a very consistent impression, because the coating on the stamp causes the ink to bead up unevenly.
Season your stamp1. Place stamp on a block and rub gently on your arm. Your stamp will become cloudy.
2. Ink well (tap tap twist twist) in a pale colour such as Bamboo.
3. Stamp multiple times on scrap paper, until the impression you are getting is even.
4. Clean with the stamp scrubber and spritz cleaner especially made for My Acrylix stamps.
DiscolourationOver time your stamp will build up colour, especially if you use intense inks such as Ruby or Black. This is a natural process and can't be completely avoided, but you can minimise colouring by seasoning your stamp (as above).
Also b sure to clean the stamp after you have used it with Spritz Cleaner sprayed on the stamp scrubber. Don't let the stamp sit for long periods of time with ink on it.
I have been able to remove some colour by soaking the stamp overnight in a strong solution of Stamp Spritz.
Using Archival ink and Versamark ink will colour your stamp permanently and is one of the reasons I only use Archival ink when there is a very good reason.
