  • Refill ink question

    Is this possible.The refill inks can be bought like liquid in bottles, could I use it like paint and just paint in the areas I want with the refil ink just so I can emboss certain areas?
    Hope that made sense.

    err, no, well, it's not abundantly clear to me (but I may be having a numpty day!) ..

    I don't quite see the problem.. as long as you can get the ink out in to a dish, or a brush etc in to the bottle you could apply it to anything surely...???

      Thats what i hoped but thought it cant be that easy, something I want to do being so straight forward.But looks like it will be.Darn it, il have to spend more money now, then again il just add it to the looooong list of other things Ive bought.

        What sort of ink?

        The only one that maybe wouldn't work, and would be prohibitively expensive too, is inkjet-printer ink, as that's funny stuff...

          Having tried to refill an inkjet cartridge with one of those injection kits, believe me, it will go "anywhere and everywhere" !! but as ink jet cartridges only come in 6 colours (or 7 inc black) it's easy enough to get calligraphy type ink in those shades for considerably less...

          I was presuming seahorse was referring to stamp pad type ink?? probably mistaken though!

              Well, I use my ink pads to add colour to card, paper, and embellishments (usually the permanent inks for embellishments!) I just use the whole pad like a paint pad and put the card or paper on a protective layer.. so if you had refill inks, no reason why you couldnt apply them direct with a brush or cotton pad, or piece of sponge etc...

                    You could aways buy the brush maker pens and draw/colour what you want and emboss. There are a few brands that stay wet long enough to do this (including SU stampin' markers). Saves having to mess about with bottles of ink refils which, as already been said, will get very expensive.
