Apply Glaze to Stamp
» Clean stamp prior to first use with mild soap or AC-525 Brush Cleaner and
remove film that could repel glaze.
» Place paper towel on flat surface and lay stamp on it.
» Dispense glaze that will be used onto a palette, plate or other surface which
will allow glaze to be exposed to air. You'll want the glaze to tack up" or dry
a little bit before applying to the stamp.
» Dip a synthetic sponge (or AC-212 Sponge on a Stick) into the glaze, pat off
any excess. and lightly dab the sponge against the raised design of the stamp.
Avoid getting glaze on the outer areas of the stamp or over applying to raised
Apply Glaze to Ceramic Surface
» Use on top of unfired glazed surfaces or directly apply to bare bisque.
» Lay stamp on ceramic surface.
» Gently pat the stamp to apply the design - pat too hard and you may distort
» To remove the stamp - pinch the ends of the stamp and lift straight up from
the surface. Avoid letting the stamp slide as this too could distort the image.
» As you are only applying a light application of the glaze with the stamp,
lighter colors may not show up well when stamped over darker colors.
» Keep stamps clean with a toothbrush and water. The toothbrush will remove
glaze that may settle in the crevices of the stamp.
» For precise stamp placement - use a pencil to make hash marks where you wish
to lay the stamp (the pencil marks will fire out).
» If you wish to use a specific section of the stamp, cut a piece of paper to
create a "window" which will block unwanted design details from being
transferred to your work.
» Many good designs can be created by only "inking" up sections of the stamp and stamping in random angles.
» Clear glaze is not necessary (unless used on bare bisque).
