Stamping with Acrylic Paint by Niki Estes

Hi everyone! I thought I would share a tutorial with you today about how to stamp using acrylic paint. It's a messy and imperfect technique that is lots of fun and adds some beautiful texture to your project. I used the Ice Skating Henry Mouse image for my card along with a snowflake stamp that came with the winter kit.


Stamping with Acrylic Paint Tutorial


This is an easy technique that doesn't require very many supplies. You will need some acrylic paint (I am using paint from Claudine Hellmuth, but any acrylic paint will work), a sponge brush, a paint brush, a stamp, and your cardstock.

Dab some paint on to your work surface so that it will be easy to pick up with the sponge brush.
Pick up some paint with the sponge brush and dab it onto your stamp. You don't need it too thick. Reapply paint after each image you stamp.
Random stamp your cardstock with the stamp and acrylic paint. Don't press too hard. If necessary, practice on some scrap cardstock until you get the hang of how much pressure you need to use. Be sure to stamp off the edge of your paper to make it look more realistic like real patterned paper. Some of the stamped images will be imperfect, but it adds a fun look and texture to your project.
Now, use the sponge brush to swipe the edges with paint. It adds a fun wintry look to the project when you're using white paint. Clean the stamp right after you are done stamping since it will dry pretty quickly. You can still get the paint off if it dries, but it is much easier when the paint has not dried yet. I just go to a sink, run water over the stamp, and scrub it with an old toothbrush so you can get the paint out of the crevices on the stamp. The paint will come right off.



Here is my finished card using this fun technique. I swiped some paint along the edges of my card base, my sentiment, and my image, too.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and will try stamping with acrylic paint!

  1. This looks like wonderful fun - a lot more texture than ink and not shiny like embossing would be. Very cool!

    One question - do you have any trouble cleaning the stamps? How quickly do you need to clean them before you get into trouble?
