The clear stamps (called too polymer stamps, photo-polymer stamps, clear rubber stamps) made with a polymer resine and light (yes light =)) are super easy to use and storage, we can found unlimited posibilities for use a clear stamp.
Then read a few pages about these fantastic toys here you can found a little ideas for use, storage, clean and playing with clear stamps.
1.- Clear stamps can be colored with light (they are produced with light) so it is advisable to keep them protected from light in a cd case, binder or similar.
2.- Use with carefully with solvent inks (staz-on and others), probably you can't clean the stamp after and can't use a disolvent product without damaging the polymer, preferably using ink that can be dissolved (adirondack and others).
3.- Some stampers report better results if they stamp on a slightly giving surface such as a mouse mat or a similiar and use a single large acrylic block for starting with the stamps, don't buy a lot of blocks, with two or three differents sizes is enough.
4.- In a different pages recomended 'scuff' the stamps before use, you can use a fine grit sand paper or strong eraser for it (I have not tried this yet) for a better definition in the images.
1.- With water and soap
2.- Baby toitlet
3.- Ph neuter soap
I found some ideas for storage but I prefer are the bidding book and the cd case (maybe I prefer this one for a unmounted rubber stamps... I can't smell the rubber lol) here some links about
1.- Bidding books
2.- CD Cases
Clear stamps are cheap (you can found for a dollar), easy storage, unlimited posibilities, better clean system, no cutting needed and easy use and colocation in you project.
Worst definition level, are more fragile, can tear, crack or stain easily.
Noy you decide and here some links with important information about clear stamps, enjoy it!! ;)
