RI Stamp Technique Tutorial

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
ALright,

So its not the best, but considering I didn't really have to do this, here goes!

I found some cheap ($1.5) acrylic frames at AC MOORE, but you can get em at WM too... cheaper..

I spread my BC out so it could crust.

I printed off the images I liked, and slid them into the frame. If you use a letter, print the reverse! I didn't do that and half way through I went oh dang! But since its just a practice, whatever icon_smile.gif

Then I just made some realllllly stuff RI and traced the design.

Then I sprinkled with PS and pressed the image in like an impression mat.

It worked...except I didn't wait long enough and some of my RI came off in the stamping process.

I would also use a thinner tip and let it dry a lot longer. I waited about 15 min... I'm impatient!

I would also let me BC crust longer. Though it was kinda unstiff to begin with.

Sorry so rushed, I am on my way out the door! I'll update with more as I figure it outicon_smile.gif

Oh, just tried it after letting my BC and RI dry more, and it works sooooooo much better.

I used a tip 4 and really think a 2 would be better because the icing spreads and the lines were pretty deep.

Good Luck, I will post pictures of the final scroll work icon_smile.gif I am soooo stoked to see what I can do with this icon_smile.gif

Thanks to everyone who advised meicon_smile.gif

I was wondering if you could use this idea to make a design on a cookie by dipping it into some food coloring and placing on iced and dried cookie??

You are a genius. Using the frame makes it so easy to keep the image in the acryllic. I love this forum.

I will try this when I need to do writing or more detailed piping work.

Thanks

gel food coloring w/ alcohol? Will try the next time I make RI. That's the only way we can find out!
