Op art image Chez-delaney
I spent the better part of last night doing practice stamping with different polishes using plate H5. The very cool Op Art image was a royal pita to work with. I tried every stampable polish- konad specials included- with the same results. The problem with this image happens during the "pick-up" process, when the stamp is picking up the image off the plate. Pressure from the stamper forces/squishes the polish down each groove and puddles on all 4 sides of the square.
I seemed to get better results from a thin coat of holo, however, they're so fast drying that by the time I got the stamper to plate, the thinnest lines on the image had already dried!
I finally gave up and went to bed. Before I nodded off to sleep, it came to me why I was getting those puddle results. While I've never had a class in Physics, something tells me this has something to do with the laws of Physics, namely- Inertia.
With that theory, I fell asleep feeling very smart, so all was not lost.
