Next, I spooned some of the thickened dye mix onto the batting and spread around so it would be a large enough area to cover the stamp. Then I loaded the stamp and applied to pre-soaked and dried cotton that I had pinned onto a padded work surface.
So far, I really like how the batting worked as a stamp pad, and I will probably use that method to try some of my other stamps as well as the adire ones. Next, I will probably try the adires with a new discharge stamp pad I ordered from Dharma Trading, which should be here in a few days. I may try some of my cheap hand-made stamps with the discharge pad first. Then I'm thinking I might try using my old stand-by discharge solution - dishwashing gel with bleach - on a pad. I will do some side-by side tests with the purchased discharge pad and the home remedy and post pix so you can see the results, probably next week. Meanwhile, I'm getting kind of inspired to get my stamps out and play around with them... maybe make some new ones as well, now that I have this new method of loading them!
