I am so saddened every time I read or hear that someone has tossed out their rubber stamp ink pads! It is just soooooo easy to fix them!!!
This is a versamark Pad and as you can see the corner has come loose.
Just run a thread of Glossy accents around that loose corner
Set the pad back down and put the lid on the pad. Set it aside for 24 hours. It will be good as new!
And if your pad has dried out and you do not have the reinker for it...Perfect Refresher is just a perfect way to fix that!
Here's what the pad stamped...you can tell it's totally dried out.
I spritzed the Perfect Refresher on it, until the stuff floated on top of the pad. Then take an old credit card and spread the refresher down into the pad.
This is what it stamped immediately. If I do this 2-3 more times and let it set overnight, it will bring the ink back so I can use it quite a long time.
On the other hand...if you want to mail all your old ink pads to me, I will repair them and then donate them to local home-school moms. They will be thrilled to get them as their "budget" for art supplies is usually whatever we give them! A great way to guarantee home-schooled kids get art included in their cirriculum..
