Takes tinkering with the negative, but WELL worth it!

Comments about Imagepac Stampmaker Kit:
I have been trying different ways to make my own Photopolymer stamps. I am using the images to stamp and etch metal, and I wanted to use my own designs to create my pieces. I tried using some plain photopolymer resin and a UV lamp, but the hard part was getting the thickness of the resin, the placement with the lamps, the timing and the holder (all home-made, via an Instructable) right. It was disasterous. I decided to take a chance on the Imagepac Stampmaker Kit, and I'm really glad that I did. I have made two sets of "Medium" sized stamp plates. They turned out wonderfully, including very detailed images and text. Aside from the precise timing, the most important thing is the NEGATIVE. You have to have a dark negative. If any light gets through, you don't have a stamp. My inkjet didn't print a dark enough negative, and after googling and getting onto the maker's site, they suggested either using a laser and layering two identical images on top of one another or using white spirits or a toner spray to make the image dark enough. Since I didn't have the right chemicals/sprays, I opted for the double layer approach. But to do that, I had to create identical images, print them and then ensure they were exactly situatied on top of one another. To do that, I created a Photoshop template with registration marks for my negative, duplicated it on the same page and then printed and cut them out of the transparency. I used repositionable glue pen to put them together and then went about making my stamp with this double-layer negative. Even my first try was a rousing success. The other key thing is to take the time to do a thorough wash-out. If you don't, when hardening the image/stamp, you will ruin your image. It sounds like a lot of work (it is a bit), but if you want your own images for a reasonable price...this kit will pay for itself in no time, The same size Medium stamp (A7 size) would have cost me around $25 to have produced. I also purchased refills of the resin packs...I know I will be making more!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
