Have you tried any of the creamy paint-type products like Inka Gold: http://www.polyclayplay.com/Cart/categories/Viva-Decor/Inka-Gold/

or gilder's paste: http://www.gilderspaste.com/cgi-bin/Shopper.exe?search=action&keywords=all&template=Templates/order.html

I like them both equally well, though the inka gold seems less smelly.

Hi Gillian, I'm kind of a babe in the woods when it comes to things like inks, so you input is REALLY helpful! I didn't know about either.

Thanks!

Well, they're more for rubbing onto a stamped impression than for stamping with, if you get my drift. I wouldn't expect them to work well as traditional stamp pad ink; they're thick, like wax. If that will work for you, I suggest giving one or two colors a try.

Hi Gilladian, Thanks for the additional info. Right now I'll be stamping with gold, so they probably wouldn't be but ideal, but they sound intriguing so I put them on my wish list for the future.
Thanks!

I love the inka gold.  It is easy to control the application as it is not as juicy as some gilders  paste that I have.

If rubber stamping polymer clay I use Paulette Hybrid stamp Ink by Stuart Superior Corporation. The ink stays very well on polymer clay, baked polymer clay, and keeps it's good colors. I like to buy the inks and sets of four colors that are collected by the company and assigned to a specific artist.

I have most of the four color "Artist" sets. They are small and can be left open when inking as they do not dry out quickly.

For example the Escher palette has these colors; New Canvas, Burnt Number, Charcoal, Noir. There website does not sell the inks but they do have a list of dealers who sell the ink.My favorite color of these four is New Canvas. It is a pale ivory color and looks good on dark clay.

None of these colors are metallic but they are excellent when I'd like to add detail to a project.

So, where do you buy them as that website does not appear to be a sales site for individuals?

The Palette brand does come in Metallics according to their list.

I'm not sure how I got the dealer but I may have contacted them or found a dealer list. It's been a long time. Here is the email address:

sales@stewartsuperior.com

Yes, they do have a metallic but I did not mention it as I have not personally tried it on baked polymer clay.  If you find the metallic it would be good to know how it performs on clay.

I began using this particular ink as at the time I was making the clear stamps that are created using light. Because strong alcohol inks destroy the clear stamps I found this brand in a desperate hunt to keep my original stamps from being destroyed.
Good luck on your hunt for a dealer and if you find one please let us know. Thank you.

I rubber stamped the brown outlines onto a cabochon with a low dome. When dry, I used Walnut Hollow colored pencils and colored all of the features. When the stamped illustration was completely colored I put a very thin layer of  liquid polymer clay over the face and baked it. Next I used tiny flower and leaf canes and embellished the colored design. It was baked again, lightly sanded and varnished using a polymer clay friendly varnished high-gloss.
