Using Colorbox Pigment Ink To Decorate A Basswood

by | June 24th, 2016 | 6

Hello everyone!!  Kymona here to show you how to decorate a basswood with Colorbox Pigment Ink!!  The summer official started this week Monday and its time for all sorts of outdoor activities.  The round basswood serves as perfect trays to hold all sorts of sweet drinks.

Let me show you how!

I gather all of the supplies I wanted to use to create my new tray.

I figured it was way to many colors so I decided to go with the Colorbox®Petal Point ink only.

Here is the list of supplies you’ll need:

How to get started inking up your basswood:

Start by inking up Clearsnap skinny-wood-mount-stamp sweet with the darkest color from the Kiss Colorbox Pigment Ink.

Stamp the sentiment at the top of the basswood three times evenly spacing them out.

Then you place the stencil in the center of the basswood and choose the second darkest color and ink up the stencil using the ink petal.  Making sure to cover the entire flower.

Stenciling the Big flower

Once the big flower is in place,  choose the smaller flowers and stencil those with different colors randomly on the basswood.

Don’t worry about smudging the ink with the stencil; the ink dries quickly on the wood.

Stenciling the smaller flowers

Once you have a good number of solid flowers down,  use the daubers and stencil some of the flowers with two different inks, creating a two-tone flower.

It doesn’t matter which color you lay down first, you want the colors to transfer to one another for a pretty affect.

Two-tone stenciling with daubers

Add as many of the two-tone flowers as needed but do not over crowd the wood.  Once that is completed, your basswood is ready to sit on your table with sweet drinks.

Here is what the complete basswood tray looks like with the colored daubers.  Only four colors were used to create this multi-color look.
