Default Paper Casting Technique

For the Paper Casting Technique, your stamp becomes the mold in this unusual Technique. You will need your favorite stamp, glue, water, wrapping tissue paper or toilet paper, an old wash cloth.

Prepare tissue:
Cut tissue slightly larger than stamp.
For wrapping tissue: I used about 8 pieces
For toilet paper: 3 squares of Ultra Thick TP, use more layers if using thinner TP

Squeeze about a quarter-size amount of glue into a paper cup.
Add about 1/4 c. water and stir.
Add tissue to glue-water.
Place the wet tissue on to the rubber side of the stamp/mold.
Use the wash cloth to press the tissue into the grooves of the stamp/mold.
Continue layering to get the thickness you desire.
When finished, press the wash cloth on to the tissue covered stamp/mold a few more times. This will serve to press the paper into the stamp/mold and absorb extra water.
Carefully peel the paper off the stamp/mold. (It will still be wet.)
Set aside to dry.
Clean stamp.

Options:
-Add a layer of colored tissue or tissue with writing in between layers of tissue.
-Pre-ink stamp with pigment ink.
-Use as is, or color dry molded image with chalks.
-The cast may curl as it dries, but will flatten when mounted.

Samples:

Very good point, Mouse!
I used Charmin Ultra Strong, so it is pretty thick (it also has a texture to it). So if the TP is thinner, just layer more on.

BTW, I enjoyed doing this technique more with the TP.

I'll note this in the directions.

How do you clean the stamp once you've made your casting?

Another good question! Thanks, AQ.
I spray the stamp with watered-down dish detergent and scrub with an old toothbrush.

I have done this before but have never added the glue to the water, hmmm.... If you get card stock wet enough, you can do this with it as well.

The praying hands on this card are paper cast:http://www.rubberstampchat.net/galle...2626&ppuser=90
