IOD Stamps - Iron Orchid Designs Stamps
IRON ORCHID DESIGNS (IOD) STAMPS
IOD Stamps are just like other furniture or home décor stamps, but it is unique in a way that these stamps are designed both for scale and motif, making them perfect for high-end décor and fashion. These furniture stamps are perfect for creating distinct décors for your home, jewelries, for important events like weddings and birthdays, and even for culinary creations.
Iron Orchid Designs Stamps are perfect for different stamping techniques such as masking, clay impressions and even paint texture creation. It’s ideal for use in wide variety of applications and surfaces including wood, fabric, walls, floors, sugar arts, and ceramics. You can use mediums such as paint, ink, edible paste gel and embossing powder.
IOD Stamps can be used in different ways. You can mount them on a décor block. You can use them freestyle, which means also using the plastic sheet that comes with them. Or you can use them directly, without any mount. The furniture stamps are made from high quality materials which makes them quite sturdy, therefore there’s no need to worry if you exert a little bit of force when removing them from their backings.
How to Apply:
- If first time use, make sure to condition the stamps. Remember, you only need this when you first open the stamps. This will stabilize the medium on the surface and give you a cleạnėr impression. Use a fine sạnding block to lightly sạnd in two directions to create micro textures.
- Next is to mount the furniture stamp on thin mount sheets. One way is to cut apart the sheet so that each will stay at the portion of the backing and use as individual pieces. Some people will find this a little challenging to store these stamps. But you can also do without cutting the stamps in individual pieces.
- Make sure that the back of the stamp and the thin mount sheets are both clean and dry.
- Place the design facing downward and when you are happy with the placement, cover with the thin mount’s and make sure the stamp sticks to the mount.
- Get your ínkpad and apply décor ink on it. Make sure that the ink is applied all throughout the ínkpad.
- Pat the ínkpad lightly on the surface of the stamp, until the design is entirely covered with ink.
- Place the stamp on to the desired surface and use one hand to hold it steady, which the other hand to gently run over the surface.
- Lift the stamp gently and check your work. Take note that IOD décor ínks usually dry in about 10 minutes.
- To clean the stamp, you may use a tissue if using it again immediately. If you are using it for another time, then you may use warm, soapy water to remove the ínk.
