Tim Holtz Inks
Tim Holtz Distress Inks would be a superb investment for anyone into craft and design, with their colours being perfect for the vintage, stained, aged effect that might suit your needs if you are creating altered books, scrapbook pages, cards or paper craft projects. There is a great range of unique and precise colours and shades too, from antique linen to bundled sage, dried marigold and many more.
Distress inks are acid-free, non-toxic, fade resistant, water-based dye inks. Tim Holtz has been a crafter for almost 20 years, and it is he who selected the colours and helped develop these inks to produce a realistic, weathered look on paper, photos and decorative fibres. All the colourful Distress Inks allow for increased versatility when photo tinting and colour layering with the original, award winning tones. The 3 x 3 inch pads are made with a raised felt so that they are easy to use with direct to paper techniques and inking up larger stamps.
But there is also more in the form of Oxide Inks and Oxide Re Inkers, which are made up of a water-reactive dye & pigment ink fusion. This combination creates an oxidized effect when sprayed with water which is just as effective when used with stamps, stencils or direct to surface. These are blended using Ink Blending Tools and Foam, the former of which you can also buy here at Crafty Devils Papercraft.
