So I thought I'd put together a little post on how I use it.
1. First thing I did was peel off my rubber stamps from the wood blocks.
2. When I'm ready I'll do a bunch at one time. I brush on an even coat of Alleen's with a regular paint brush. When I'm done I wash the brush with warm soapy water. It doesn't hurt the bristles at all. I got a bunch of these nylon bristle brushes from my Dollar Store.
3. Let the Alleen's dry- usually takes a couple of hours or best to leave overnight if you can. Once it's dried it is VERY sticky! Sometimes too sticky and I think that this has turned some people off.
So to "de-stick" it before using on acrylic blocks I do this:
I know it's kind of weird and I wouldn't recommend this if you have dry or sensitive skin but it really works for me.
I remember doing this one time and having quite a few stamp sets on my arms. I was in a de-sticking frenzy and trying to work through a number of sets. My daughter walked into the room at that moment, rolled her eyes and walked out!
What can I say...
