Using enamels on rubber stamps

Postby Klikth » Thu Dec 06, 2018 6:37 am

Hi there,
First time posting.
Can anyone out there help me with the question of enamels on rubber stamps.
What do you mix the enamel powder with to get a smooth consistency in order to stamp on glass and do you fire the enamel on the glass first and then cap it with clear glass and fire again to protect the image. Also, how do you clean off the stamp after use?

Interesting idea! What kind of enamels are you using? Do you need it to have a sticky feel, like printing ink, to stick to the stamp? (I don't have any advice on this one, but I would like to know more about what you are attempting.)

I wrote a blog post where I used a clay texture roller to apply enamel to the glass. The enamel is then powdered with mica. You can essentially do the same thing with your rubber stamp, sans the mica. I hope this helps!
