Embossible Ink Recipe

Embossible Ink Recipe

A simple recipe for creating your own embossing ink.

What you need

Rit or other Powdered Clothes Dye
1/4 tsp Alcohol
5 Tbs Glycerin
Storage jar


Start by mixing the alcohol and packet of powdered dye together to a nice creamy consistency then add the glycerin.

This makes enough ink for several refills of your ink pad.

Store in a storage jar or bottle until ready to use then simply pour and spread over your old ink pad.

    Thankyou for this receipe. I can’t wait to try it! I use my ink pads all the time and I am always running out of ink. Now I can have custom colors! So great.

  2. Does it stain the stamps that you use? Can it be used without embossing and how long before it dries?
