I was thinking of making some personalized magnets as gifts.. I thought it would be quite simple, until I started researching. All I want to do is stamp letters (to make words / quotes) on top of -not pressed into- preferrably baked polymer clay. I've searched different keywords in these threads, searched google, and read quite a list of pages from the "encyclopedia" links on inks that I keep seeing floating around. But I'm honestly still pretty confused and unsure about what the best technique for my project would be.
I was wondering if people would mind giving me their input on things they may have made? I thought I could do it just with acrylic paint, but now I'm not so sure. Which type of stamping method would be best for what I want to do? My ideal project would be to make a whole bunch of the "bases" for the words, and then just stamp on the words whenever I get the idea/request/event for a gift. I'm also looking for a stamping substance that can be glazed over with the gloss and a paint brush.
All I currently have are acrylic paints (Apple Barrel). I don't have any ink pads, or stamps for that matter. I figured I'd ask here before I went out and bought something that could possibly be usesless towards my projects.
