Using rubber stamps

Using rubber stamps

We had a question on the list recently about using rubber stamps in porcelain painting. Im posting the responses here .. as well as a post I put up of one of my pieces using stamps :

First Fire: Do pen work on the owl. Paint plate rim with metallic gold

Second Fire: Rouge in colors on owl. Using Yellow Brown or Sage Brown,
paint over the metallic gold, smooth out brush strokes, maybe pounce
slightly. Your brown paint should be the consistency of cake batter, so that
when you stamp on the wet paint, it will come off on the rubber stamp.

Have a folded paper towel ready so that you can "stamp" the stamp on the
towel between each stamping on the plate. If you need to have a cleaner
stamping, after blotting stamp on paper towel, spray with a little alcohol,
blot on towel, then stamp on plate again.

I have also used a star and a small poinsettia stamp on the rim of Christmas
plates. The silver metallic paint shows up nicely too. I suppose Mother of
Pearl might be good to use in this way, or any light colored luster.

And this was sent by Carol Ann from Caz:
Thanks, Carol ! ;thumps;

A couple of years ago I had a workshop at the Caz school in the evening and
we stamped images on a small tray. We used an open oil medium mixed with
black paint. We spread the paint thinly on a tile and then pressed the
rubber stamp into the paint., Then we stamped the image onto the tray. It
really works great. One thing to remember is to buy a stamp that has the image
lines raised and not too close together. And of course when stamping make
sure that you lay the stamp down and gently press. If you press too hard
the paint will blur and if you more the stamp it will definitely mess up the
design. You have to lift the stamp straight up when removing..If either of
these things happen...just wipe off the paint from the tray, clean the
stamp and reapply paint and restamp. Remember...practice makes perfect.
I have not tried it with a water base medium. I do think that the key to
getting a good image is having the correct stamp with raised lines to obtain
a nicely presented end product.
If you have any further questions please feel free to e-mail me personally.
