In the video below, Kim Kesti, FSJ Concept Art Manager, will explain how to blend our inks using our Stained Glass Stencil as a mask. Yes, you can blend our True Color Fusion Inks. They are a hybrid of pigment & dye-based inks allowing you to create a rainbow look.

Fun Stampers Journey Ink Pads 20% off this Month!

Many of you have asked, what is fusion ink?  
It is a fusion between pigment and dye ink and creates the most amazing impression with your stamps.  It looks like a regular stamp pad, but the product is quite different.


Let’s talk ink in general...
Dye Inks are permanent and translucent and have a thin consistency like water so they tend to dry quickly. You can’t color in dye based stamped images with paint, markers, pens or other water-based mediums because the ink will run together. You can, however, use colored pencils. Many dye-based inks are acid-free, however the color fades over time, especially in sunlight. Dye inks have a felt-based stamp pad. Ink pads should be stored upside-down to keep the ink on the surface of the pad. 

Pigment Inks are opaque and have a thicker, richer consistency than dye-based ink and take longer to dry. Pigment inks are usually brighter and more vibrant and are fade-resistant. They are perfect to use with heat embossing powders to create a glossy effect. Pigment inks have a foam-based stamp pad. Ink pads are usually very juicy so should be stored right side up so you don’t get an inky mess.

 With our True Color Fusion Inks you have the best of the two worlds. Our ink pads have the vibrant ink and archival features of pigment and the ease of use and fast drying characteristics of dye inks. True Color Fusion Inks are fade resistant and acid-free. This combination makes our ink pads the best on the market today. True Fusion Color Inks will become permanent when stamped on glass, fabric, wood, plastic, metal and clay when heat set. 

Introducing True Color Fusion Ink



Care and Use of Fusion Ink



I've been using fusion ink pads on all projects posted to this blog since the end of May.  I could not be happier!  No sagging in the middle with larger stamps, no lines or inconsistencies with reinking, you do not have to store them upside down, they are really quite perfect and I know you will love them!

Gel Press and Liquid Colors Videos

This weekend I have two videos for you to watch on new Fun Stampers Journey products.  
The Journey Gel Press and the Liquid Colors.



Fun Stampers Journey has partnered with Gel Press to bring us the Journey Gel Press.


Journey Gel Press is a high quality reusable printing plate.  It can be paired with Liquid Colors, paint, Silks, Splashes and more to create project backgrounds.

Liquid Colors



Liquid Colors are water based dye inks. 
Coordinate with existing color palette.
Vibrant concentrated color, but still has a translucent property. 
Dye is dissolved in water, so it absorbs into card stock quickly.
 Can be combined with water to produce watercolor effect. 
Colors can be applied via brushes, brayer, daubers, etc.
Acid free, but non archival.

You can see all the Liquid Colors HERE.

Add Liquid Colors to the Create-A-Palette to make a custom ink pad!
