Distress Oxide Spray Rubber Stamp Resist 5

Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Spray Resist on Rubber Stamps

 

Hello everyone! I’ve been playing around for the past few weeks with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Sprays and Distress Oxide ink pads with the regular Spray Stains. Today, I am experimenting with Distress Oxide Sprays on a rubber stamp. This is one of my “long and winding road” experiment videos, but it ended up being a fun distraction during lock down 😉

I sprayed Distress Oxide Sprays (pigment) onto a Rubber Stamp and stamped the image onto a piece of cardstock. Then I came over the top of that with regular Distress Spray Stains (non-pigment). The Distress Oxide appears to resist the regular spray stain and shows through. I also tried using Dylusions Ink Sprays to see how that would work.

In general, I would say it is worth giving it a try if you have all the materials. Using Distress Oxide Spray on the stamp makes it a bit trickier to get a clean, crisp image. Also, you might experiment with spraying right away one time and then letting the Distress Oxide dry a bit another time before you spray on top of it to see which would work better for you.

Here are a couple of examples of the experiments:

Then I brought the images into the photo editing software, GIMP, and did a simple blend mode on them (Darken only and HSL Color) to get these variations:

Hope you give it a try! Enjoy!
