SU!: Use SU stamps with acrylic paint?

Jeannette Lord

Has anyone used SU stamps with acrylic paint: example on t-shirt or other
fabric?... If so, how do you clean the stamps? When dry is the design
washable/colorfast?

Yes, after it dries it's washable.  I've done this.  (As well as stamping on my walls with Acrylic paints).  Just clean the stamp up with soap & water and a toothbrush.  It's easier if you don't let the paint dry on the stamp.

There is actually an item called Fabric Medium. It helps your acrylic paint
last longer on fabric. When stamping on fabric, you mix the medium with the
paint -  "ink" my stamp by painting the paint/medium on the rubber and then
stamp the fabric. I recommend practice on scrap fabric to make sure you
have a feel for how much paint you really need on the stamp. I keep baby
wipes handy and clean my stamp off on those regularly as the acrylic dries
fairly quickly.

When washing items stamped with paint, I cold water wash and hang to dry (I
do that with any clothing I want to last and look great for a long time).

Re: SU!: Use SU stamps with acrylic paint?

Some additional tips as I used to do LOTS of stamping with paint -- we  
even sold small bottles of paint in the catalog years ago. You can  
brush the paint on the stamp with a foam brush -- or I always like to  
squirt a small circle of paint on a plastic disposable plate, cover  
the paint with a square of muslin fabric that's slightly damp -- push  
on the fabric with the stamp and the paint will ooze up through the  
fibers to coat the stamp -- almost like a paint stamp pad. I stamped  
many walls that way back when that was more in fashion.

I found that I had to scrub the stamps with a toothbrush after -- and  
my wood blocks were always stained from the paint but the rubber  
stamps still worked just fine. I'm one of those people who are not  
bothered by dirty blocks -- they are the sign of creativity at work to  
me.
