So a certain wood burning tool caught my eye in Michael’s a couple months back and I was curious…
Studio Calico had one for sale on their site during the Black Friday sale so I dropped it right into my cart. When it arrived on my doorstep, I was super cited. NOW what to do with it?!
Well I have these cool stamps by Kellie Winnell…maybe with a steady hand I could give it a whirl.
I tried using black ink to start with which was too dark. Tried Versamark then which was too light. Finally I tried Ranger’s Archival Ink in Coffee which worked beautifully. I warmed up the tool for the allotted 5 minutes and started practicing. You have to be careful not to leave the tip pressed down too long or too hard; an easy constant stroke turned out best.
