The product StazOn, was developed to ink on surfaces like leather, aluminum foil, plastic, cellophane, acrylic,
glass and even metals. 

Applying StazOn

StazOn can be applied with a rubber stamp, or by dabbing your piece directly onto the ink pad. You can also use Stazon on clear stamps, however, don’t use StazOn Cleaner on them. The cleaner will definitely lead to deterioration of your stamps.

Drying time is about 3 seconds (porous surfaces) and 5 minutes (non porous surfaces) and the drying time varies based on the surface and or materiel you are using.

Using StazOn Ink on Glass and Metal

Using StazOn on glass and metal can be rather tricky and
I have used StazOn many a time, however never on these type of surfaces. After rummaging through my supplies, I found an old mini tin and thought it would be good to practice on so I started by stamping some flower images and the words “With Love”. 

Yep, I was kinda worried about making a mistake or smearing the ink and you know what! I did exactly that, it was a good thing that it wiped off with StazOn Cleaner and a baby wipe..Phewww!!

The tin surface is a little slippery to stamp on and after this mess up it worked perfectly fine. As a result I finished up with a fairly clean image on my mini tin.

StazOn On Glass

Let’s try using StazOn ink on glass because we like to experiment – Right?

To do this use a rich amount of ink, but press the stamp gently on the glass and hold firmly. This prevents the stamp from sliding on the glass. If you are not happy with the result wipe away the stamped image with StazOn remover.
Tip: Don’t have StazOn remover? then try some nail polish remover.

Other uses for StazOn.

So there are many other ways you can use StazOn on your craft projects, for example you could ink embellishment such as rhinestones and gems, as well as chipboard, vellum, acetate and more.

How about giving some of them a go and share some of your creations in the community.
