    Default clear stamps...

    is there a trick to using them? I notice that the ink beads up and doesn't get full coverage like on a rubber stamp.

    they always look like they are not covered all the way but when you stamp it, it fills in I guess with pressure. I've drove myself nuts b4 trying to get it all inked too! Try stamping it and see what it does, probably will cover it.

    Yep, Kelly is right and the kind of ink you use really helps too. Dye inks just don't seem to do the same as others. I have the best luck with chalk inks. I really enjoy clear stamps!

    I've only just bought a couple of clear stamps and not used rubber, so i don't have a comparison. I don't have a problem with the coverage on my clear ones though. They must just even themselves out like pp said.

    hmm, i've stamped them and they still seem weird. maybe it is what Angie mentioned...I am using a Dye based ink. I'll try and get some chalk based ink and see if that makes a difference.

    It seems to help if you run an eraser over them. I think it 'roughs' it up a little.

    I use pigment and chalk inks with my clear stamps and they work beautifully.

    I use pigment inks with mine. I'm a bit bummed I can't use my ink markers anymore with them, but I love my clear stamps more then my ink markers.

    Like Lena mentioned, rubbing an eraser over them helps the ink to stick. You know, I have bought so many different clear stamps and never seem to fun into these issues. So strange, yet I hear many ppl mention these problems. Do you have an acrylic block? I mount mine to an acrylic block, then ink and stamp.
