The IOD décor stamps aren’t just for furniture and home décor, you can use them to transform your food art as well! The stamps are made from a food safe material (do not use the same sets for food and paint ￼;)). But be warned- they are not for high heat applications. Do NOT put in dishwasher, they will melt at extreme heats. And then you will be extremely heated too.
To use an Iron Orchid Design stamp, you will need to apply ink to the stamp, position it on your desired surface, and then press down firmly and evenly to transfer the image onto the surface. You can use various types of ink depending on the surface and the effect you want to achieve. It's also recommended to practice on a test surface before stamping onto your final project to ensure you have the desired result.
PREPARATION IS KEY.
Before removing from backing, condition your stamps with very fine sandpaper, scuff the surface in two directions. This helps the mediums stay put, and not bead (which some types, like ceramics glazes, tend to do).
Remove stamps from backing when ready to use. This takes some force, but don’t worry, the stamps are strong.
To prepare your stamps, use sandpaper to scuff the surface before removing from the backing. Different mounting methods are recommended for different surfaces, including a large block for flat surfaces, freestyle stamping for irregular surfaces, and no mount for curved surfaces. Use paint or ink for different mediums, and be sure to apply a generous load of medium when stamping fabric. Care for your stamps by keeping wet wipes nearby, washing them with mild soap and warm water, and storing them on the clear backing after cleaning.
SURFACES AND APPLICATIONS
Fabric: When stamping fabric the load of medium should be generous in order to penetrate the fibers, and the look will be different with different levels of fabric texture. Décor ink, Chalk paint and other fabric suitable mediums work well. It is our opinion that the ideal fabric for permanent washables is 100 percent cotton. However, blends and some other natural fibers can sometimes work as well. Do a small test to be sure. Allow your newly stamped fabric to dry/cure for a minimum of 24 hours, then heat set with an iron on high heat before washing.
