I'm looking for recommendations for a gold ink (or something) for using with rubber stamps on un-cured polyclay that really looks luxurious. I've been stamping with Mona Lisa Pale Gold metal powder and it looks great, but it's SO easy to leave stray specs behind.

Thanks!

I'd stick with the powder and lightly sand off stray dust after firing.

Thanks Sherry, Hmm...the way I made my prototype hamsa it was all cured at once making sanding difficult because of all the different height of tiny appliques. But, if I made it by assembling separate pieces like a mosaic that would enable me to sand it. Grand idea. Thanks! I really like the look of the stamped metal powders and if I don't have to go out and buy anything else I'm a happy camper.

A friend turned me on to the metallic gold StazOn inks, which have 24K gold in the ink.  I haven't tried them yet, but I trust her judgement, and since StazOn is such a great product, I'd definitely give it a shot.

Hi Jenn, Thanks for the suggestion of the 24K StazOn! Next time I get to a place where there's a craft/scrap store I will definitely check it out.

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.
