Ranger Archival Inks and Ink Pads are oil-based, waterproof, acid-free, non-toxic permanent ink that will not bleed or smudge. They provide lasting stamping results that are permanent on matte and gloss papers, fabric, foil, craft metals, and shrink plastic. You will get a crisp, vivid image that does not bleed or smudge when painted over with watercolours, water-based inks or markers. The inks quickly air dry or can be heat set for faster results. The inks also have an archival quality that will not deteriorate paper or photographs over time. Safe for paper and photos, and an ideal ink when paired with Distress inks, as this ink refuses to bleed and dries almost immediately.
For stamping with fabric - it is recommended to wash the fabric first and leave it for 48-72 hours before stamping.
