Hi All,

I recently bought a set of Vintaj Patina inks by Ranger. Has anyone else tried them on polymer?

I share my first trial and impressions in this post on my blog:
http://moonroommuse.wordpress.com/2012/12/21/testing-vintaj-patina-inks-on-polymer-clay/

They seem to have potential. The colors in my set were not the greatest tho' they might be better on other colors of clay.

Would love to hear your thoughts here or comment on my blog post.

Happy Holidays!

That's so interesting! Thanks for posting your experiments.

I've been on the fence about getting in some of these products because I am not sure how they differ from the Adirondack Inks. Obviously the inks are translucent, but they do an opaque white mixer in the Adirondack range-  Snowcap.

 So I was wondering if these patinas are basically a re-branded,  bottled version of the Adirondack opaque white mixed with the different colours? If so, might just as well keep using the inks I already have with the snowcap mixer.

Did you test if they would air-dry naturally on the raw clay? Or do they need that blast of a heat-gun?

Oh and I think I can guess your mould! lol

Great experiments!

Hi Emma,

I'm glad you found my first round of experiments with the Vintaj inks helpful.

There is some air drying that happened on the raw clay. I didn't let the inks sit long enough on the clay to test how long it would take for them to dry completely (that is, past the sticky phase.)

Apparently if you use these inks on metal, it takes quite some time for the inks to completely dry to the touch. Using a heat gun was recommended on the package to speed drying on metal. That is part of the reason I took that approach when putting the inks on the raw clay.

I'm not familiar with the Adirondack white mixer, snowcap. I only have some Adirondack alcohol inks. The Vintaj inks are more like thin acrylic paints. There is a mixing ball in the bottle. That is why they reminded me of spray paints. The main ingredient is Ethylene Glycol Monobutyl Ether.

The mold I used is from a dried ear of corn. What was your guess?

Yup - I guessed the corn!

Will have to play around with the inks and the snowcap mixer on some metals sometime. I know the inks themselves are designed to work on metals too. Just the mixer will give them that opaque look that the patinas have.

So many experiments... so little time!
