  • Colouring acetate

    What can I use to put colour on acetate? I've tried whispers pens but the colour just evaporates. Anyone had any success with this?

    cheers

    Sakura, the glitter pens look particularly good, Sakura seems to go on anything. They are also available in most craft shops like Craft central or Hobbycraft.

      If you get the printable acetate you have a slightly rough side that should do the trick

          Peel off pens should do the trick too as they are permanent but I'd vote for Sakura pens too if given the choice. If you're trying to colour in peel-offs on acetate and looking for a sparkly effect have a go with a glue pen and glitter - looks fab

            You can only use permanent ink on acetate. Depending on the look you want to go for you can use sharpie pens or any other permanent markers or if you want a bit of sparkle then clear drying glue and glitter,stickles or any other glitter glue should work. I have made a lot of xmas cards using acetate and peel-offs and they work great. Also if your stamping on acetate make sure you use a permanent ink pad like stazon. Good luck!

                I use Sakura pens too - they're fab, the glitter pens are lovely and sparkly (great for Shrink plastic too) and also love the glaze pens as they stay slightly transparent and give a sort of stained glass affect.

                    Def worth investing in then, just a tip, if you want to apply two layers to give a more raised affect, make sure the first layer is totally dry or you end up scratching it back off.

                    The glaze pens work on any non-porous surface, so you'll use them again & again - I love my Sakura pens

                      Even hubby loves my Sakura glaze pens they are about the only bit of craft equipment I have that he'll actually spend more than a few seconds playing with - he's been known to decorate glass tealight holders and ashtrays.
