LaBlanche stamps are not the typical stamp that you are used to! This is a unique line of stamps from Germany that are made of a high quality silicone mounted on a firm foam base. These stamps are very light and the foam has just a little "give" to it to ensure that the stamping surface receives even pressure. The silicone allows for very fine detailed images that will simply amaze you! It also makes these stamps extremely heat resistant so you can do some great techniques that you simply can not do with other stamps. For example, you can cover your stamp with versamark ink, then pour UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel) directly ON the stamp and heat it up! Then you let it cool and peel your embossing enamel off and you have a very cool 3D image that you can color and place on your project, with NO DAMAGE to your stamp! These stamps are easy to use also, just lay them flat and dab your ink pad on the top of the stamp, flip it over and just lightly press around the stamp to transfer the ink. You clean them with any all purpose type stamp cleaner. You can see a great video of the creater of this line showing how to use the stamps, and how she colors the images using Tim Holtz Distress Inks below.
