Tip of the day 3: How to prime your silicone stamps.
If you do have silicone stamps you can prime them to make them stamp better. By using an emery board or piece of sand paper and rubbing over the surface of your stamps you can prime them. This gives them a key that your ink will stick to stopping the ink from pooling and giving you a better impression. So get out those cheap stamps that came free with a magazine (they are always silicone). Give them a rub with an emery board and you will be able to use them.
