Colour Chemistry in a Bottle

Here are some photos Ben took at a recent Open Day of me just playing and showing just a little of what you can do with the Colour Chemistry Inks. The possibilities are endless.

The height you spray from will change the type of outcome you get.

The closer you spray the more intense the colour and wet you get your project

Spray from about 6 inches (15cm) above the work to get a gentle mist.

If you can't wait for it all to dry, employ your heat gun

As it dries, you can add more colour.

Then dry again

Is this me using Purple and Yellow??

And now time to get stamping
Tap your stamp into all that surplus ink laying on your hot and messy mat.

Keep tapping till you think you have enough ink on your stamp.

stamp on to the card and repeat


still got some ink left, well find a tag or something to stamp on too.

Oh yes and why not try it on some of our cream stamping card?

hmm loving that too!

At this point I did clean my messy mat, but could have done lots more.

Well hope you liked this quick session on just some of what you can do with our products. The stamp I used was the medium Sunflower. The inks I used where Precious Purple and Citrus Lemon. We also sell tags, stamping card in cream and white 250gsm and of course Hot and Messy mats in two sizes.

Oh Lynnda I have seen you do some great things with bottled inks, but I haven't seen you stamp with them before. Feeling inspired so off to dust off my Colour chemistry.
I know you are probably busy with Summer school but Any chance you will do doing a workshop with spray inks again?? please.
