Stamping with ArtFoamies

  • ArtFoamies Stamps are durable, bold foam stamps designed for use on many surfaces. They can be used with acrylic paints, inks and glazes.
  • Each ArtFoamies Stamp comes with a free washable, reusable StampBuddy pad. Sized to fit the stamp, the StampBuddy ensures even distribution of paint to get clean, crisp prints; it is customizable, holding one or more paint colours at a time for unique multi-colour effects.

Recommended Surfaces

  • Pre-washed fabric – natural fibres like cotton, smooth linen, or dye-ready silk are best.
  • (Do not use fabric softener when preparing fabrics)
  • For best results, iron fabric before stamping. Pillows, aprons, canvases (primed or unprimed), paper and cardstock. Smooth walls, floors and furniture.
  • Unglazed clay, glazed pottery, cork, chalkboards, wood, and more.

Recommended Paints and Pigments

  • Use any acrylic paints (but no oil-based paints).
  • Use water-based or water-cleanup mediums, pigments, and ink pads. Okay with non-alcohol, non-solvent spray mists.

Special Effects

  • Load more than one colour on the StampBuddy.
  • Use a sponge, brush, or roller to add colour to ArtFoamies Stamps.
  • Paint fabric with a brush and use a clean ArtFoamies Stamp to lift colour.
  • (The lift technique works best if a lighter colour or extender is painted first).
  • Create shadow effects by stamping several times without more ink or paint.

Tips and Tricks

  • Put a layer of padding (towel, felt, phone book pages) under fabric before stamping.
  • Make sure walls and furniture are clean and dry before stamping.
  • Take care not to rock the ArtFoamies Stamp so images remain crisp.
  • Don’t forget to heat set fabric paint per manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Spread out rolls or large sheets of paper to make gift wrap.
  • Stamp on top of patterned papers to create unique effects.

Care and Storage

  • Rinse ArtFoamies Stamps with running water immediately after use.
  • Gently and thoroughly clean the grooves in the stamps.
  • Do not let paints or inks dry on the stamps.
  • Dish soap can be used if necessary, but do NOT use chemical cleaners.
  • Stamps may stain, but the stains won’t affect your art work
  • Rinse the StampBuddy before it dries; do not leave the StampBuddy in water.
  • Store ArtFoamies Stamps flat in shallow trays or boxes.
  • Make sure nothing presses into the stamps’ surface when they are stored.
