I have this great stamp I wanted to do in gold...then I found out I can't find a gold stamp pad anywhere on this island.
So far I have googled w/o success. I know I bought one a million years ago in Dallas. I've been to our 1 craft store and I hit Walmart, and the one scrapbook store seems to have gone out of business.
I tried some gold embossing powder, but the details on the image were all lost. I have some gold pigment powders but I haven't been able to get them to stick to the ink. I tried to use the stamp with gold paint but it was too thick and again I lost the detail.
I tried to use some glue that was supposed to be good for embossing effects, but again, too thick and the detail was lost.
arghhhhhhhh!! Does anyone know a mail order source for a gold stamp pad? Or some technique I can use that I haven't thought of?
I was going to use photo shop to try to change the black lines to gold, but I'm not good enough with the program to pull it off.
I'm completely frustrated and it would be so simple to fix if I could just get a stinking gold stamp pad.
