Spray, Pad or Use a Stencil with your Distress ink crafts.

We get to spotlight Tim Holtz’s distress ink sprays today for Day 5 into Inktoberfest 2019.

Distress Oxide Sprays come in all sorts of colors, but the ones you’ll see in the video below are:

Picked Raspberry Pink

Salty Ocean Blue

Carved Pumpkin Orange &

Cracked Pistachio Green

Since distress inks are a fusion, you must shake well before using.  You can spray directly onto your tag, or you can spray a side surface and dip your tag into the distress ink.

Once you apply your distress inks, you can heat with a Ranger Heating Tool, or you can add more ink colors.  You can see in my tutorial video below how I even added stencil designs by spraying letters as a top layer for today’s Inktoberfest tag.

Tim Holtz launched his Distress Oxide Spray inks at Creativation.  Distress Oxide Spray is a fusion ink that creates an oxidized effect when sprayed with water.

Creativation is an event for creative and artistic businesses to make connections and discoveries & learn from experts in your field.
