About “Embellishment Stamp Set” article

Bettefan | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

I saw this feature on the stylus and stamp set, and fell in love! The source recommended, Nancy’s Notions, had the set on clearance for only $12.99…and I hesitated. By the next day, there were none left.

  Two days later, I am about $55 in the hole. I searched all over and found a place, polymerclayexpress.com,  sell the stuff. They don’t have the kit shown, but you can order all shapes of the tips, and there is an amazing selection of mats with all sorts of designs. I can’t wait!

Question: what would you use to stamp on fabric? Ink, paint, dye? I’m not knowledgeable in this area at all.

    I haven't used the stamp set in Threads, however, I have stamped on fabric with just 'scrap booking' type stamps and 'homemade' stamps (from erasers, plastic plates, potates, etc.).  When I first started I used arcylic craft paint mixed with a textile medium.  The textile medium conditions the paint so it isn't stiff and is washable (I try to be extra carefully with garments that have stamped accents -cold wash, gentle, hang-dry).  But now I pretty much used Jaquard dyes exclusively.  They can be used straight out of the little jar or you can dilute them with water.  Then just let them dry and heat set them with a iron.  And you are set!  They are that easy and they come in a huge selection of colors.  In fact, I think they keep coming out with new colors all the time, but you can mix the dyes into your own custom colors, too. They are readily avaible at the big chain craft stores - well, they are at Michaels if you have one of those in your local area.  If not, they are avaible on the web - you can order them driect from Jaquard or better yet go to joggles.com. They carry the whole selection there.  The best bet is get an Exciter pak which has a selection of colors.  Also look to Sherrill Kahn, who has a website and has a book out about stamping on fabric.  I know I sound like a advertisment - sorry.  Hopefully this will help.  A lot of stamping is just experiementingwith the stamps and dyes and fabric to figure aout what works best.  Good luck!

    Hi Bettefan,I bought some Pebeo fabric paint from this website: http://www.dharmatrading.com/paints/ I haven't used them, yet. Too many projects and not enough time, but I did find the solar paints. These are the kind that you paint the fabric, set an object, like a leaf, on top of the fabric outside in the sun and it changes colors. I like looking at all the stuff they have on this website. I hope you have a lot of fun with your stamping.Marcy
