Choose an Ink Pad that does Justice to Your Artistic Capabilities with the CraftOnline Range
When it comes to creating art, you want to be confident in the materials you’re using so you can fully develop your skills and interest in the various mediums available to you. That’s why at CraftOnline, we supply drawing ink produced by industry leading brands such as Ranger, Tim Holtz, Hero Arts and Prima Marketing.
The effect you’re looking to create in your project will determine the type of art ink you want to use. Acrylic ink for example is ideal for producing colour blends that can feature as a striking backdrop to a focus piece. It can be used with brushes, pens and as a spray in airbrush format. When dry, acrylic ink can be altered and removed with alcohol which gives flexibility to your project. You’ll also want to check out the range of paper and cardstock we supply to choose the best fit for your drawing ink.
Alcohol inks lend themselves well to a wide range of applications onto non-porous surfaces such as metal, glass, plastic and even sand. Create your own individual coasters, match your kitchen storage jars to your home’s colour scheme or design your own miniature zen garden using coloured sand. The selection of colours available offers endless possibilities to make one of a kind pieces. You’ll find primary shades available in addition to pastels, brights and special finishes such as metallic and pearlescent colours.
For paper crafts such as scrapbooking and cardmaking, our range of ink pads offer the opportunity to make your mark on the page with stamping. A popular technique in paper projects is to create an aged or vintage look for your pages. Tim Holtz distress ink pads are perfect for this and come in a selection of colours inspired by shabby chic items like faded denim, peeling paint and weathered wood. Choose miniature distress ink pads in packs to experiment with different coloured effects within your projects. If you like the distress effect, you may also want to try working with embossing powders. Available in a range of textures and colours, these are sprinkled over stamped ink shapes to create a special effect you can incorporate into your projects.
