A. Mounting UnMounted rubber stamps with Tack’n Peel

Photobucket

1. Place acrylic block on the yellow side of the Tack ’n Peel sheet and trace the outline with a thin permanent marker.
2. Use scissors or craft knife to cut out the traced shape.
3. Peel off the yellow liner from the Tack ‘n Peel and place onto the block or handle.
4. Remove the clear liner but do not discard.
5. Place your unmounted stamp or any found object onto exposed side and begin your stamping project!
6. When finished, remove the stamp or design object and replace the saved clear liner to protect the surface until ready to use again.
(Caution, unmounted stamp or design object should be removed for proper storage to prevent difficulty in removing later.)
7. When ready for re-use, restore tackiness by just wiping the surface with a wet cloth or rinse with water if needed, and allow to air dry.


HELPFUL HINTS

  • Leftover pieces of Tack ‘n Peel can be used as double-stick tape for storing unmounted images in clear plastic cases.
  • Certain inks may stain areas not covered by unmounted stamp while
    Tack ‘n Peel is in use. This should not affect the performance of the sheet, however, if heavy build up of ink stain reduces the tackiness, replace the Tack ‘n Peel.
  • To prolong the life of your Tack ‘n Peel, store away from heat and direct sunlight.

 

B. Chalking

Use VersaMagic Chalk Pigment Ink Pads to achieve the chalk-like look without the chalky residues.
Stamp an image on paper. To apply colors, gently dab VersaMagic ink to your stamped image with a cotton swab, sponge dauber, or a stipple brush.
