"Fantastix" Usage....needing help
I just bought some of the Fantastix from I Brake For Stamps.
If you go to their web page you can see how cool the clowns are colored!
So the question is.......have you used these stix before and if so could you share some pointers.
I don't want to use them and mess them up. I am under the impression you just dab them in your ink pad and color but I could be wrong.
Thanks for your help artists!

yes you can color them that way..i also use them for dye inks on glossy..and even colored my colored pencils with added gamisol or thinners..but i did have to keep sharpening them, just try to not put blunt force toward the ends of will love them..i know i can also use them for watercolors and such

Thanks for your help on the stix.
Now tell me about the gamisol. I guess you can buy it a your local craft store. The sharpening? Use a pencil sharpen, right?

well some people use gamisol and some others just use odorless paint thinner..i think its the same..but not sure..some folks call it the same...but you might want to check..ask stampo here on the site..he has a store and he knows if its the same thing...but the ororless paint thinners are very cheap and 1 sm jar will last forever...i just use the odorless paint thinner with my colored pencils..and yes i use a pencil sharpener..just be careful and try not to eat them did that one time..hee hee hee
