Inkadinkado Shows – A Big Thank You and Finished Project Sample Gallery

April 15, 2013 — 6 Comments

With the dust just about settled I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to each and every person that placed an order during the Inkadinkado Stamping Gear shows.  I sincerely hope that you get as much fun from it as I did.  I plan to create some more blog posts in the coming weeks with more ideas on how to use the system but for now, here’s a gallery featuring some of the inspirational finished projects that were sent over from the incredibly talented Inkadinkado team.

    Fantastic shows and demo’s. Can not wait for mine to arrive and start playing (circles starter kit) What type of ink pad was used on the fabric cushion project? Was it StazOn?

      Hi Theresa, from looking at the finished projects I suspect that it was actually a fabric paint, rather than an ink. I’ll be doing some tests later today with Stazon so will let you know. J :)

      Hello again Theresa, I have had a quick trial on Stazon and also done a little research. Tsukineko (the manufacturers of Stazon Inkpads) don’t recommend Stazon ink for fabrics as the alcohol may damage the fibres of the material over time. I tried a couple of quick things myself and found that it did give a good impression, and went through one wash cycle reasonably well (i.e. with minimal degradation in design) however I would trust in what the manufacturer says and would look for an alternative.

      If you want to use inkpads specifically then Tsukineko do offer an alternative that is designed for fabrics called Versacraft (I think that it used to be called Versafabric but was re-named). You use it as a regular inkpad and stamp onto your fabric with the only difference being that you need to heat set it with an iron once it is dry. Once heat set thought it is resistant to wash cycles up to fourty degrees. Haven’t tried this myself yet, but will be off down the shops later to try and get one to add to the test run that I will be blogging about shortly.

      I have also tried the Setacolor range from Pebeo. Setacolour is a paint specifically designed for fabrics. By spreading a thin layer on acetate or other non-porous surface I found that I could then press my stamp into this and then stamp with it.

      Anyway, I hope that answers your question for now and I will try and get the blog post done about stamping on fabric soon.

      J :)

        Many thanks, for the information, will definitely be giving this a go when by bundle of stamps arrive. I will have a look for the Versacraft ink pads too. :)
