Brayer Tips

Brayer with Sweet Sorbet ink over DSP



I am glad to see the brayer back in our stamping tools. This is a great tool and has many uses.  You can find it on page 18 in the January Mini Catalog.  

I compared the new Stampin' Up brayer with the old one we had several years ago. The roller on the old one is softer than the new one. The new one is silicone in a bright red orangish color.  The roller on the new one is longer than the old one. The new one does not seem to stain as easily and can be cleaned easier if cleaned directly after use.  The new one has 'feet' to prevent the ink on the roller from getting on the wrong place on our projects ~ ever have that happen???


1. Make certain that your brayer is clean of dust or lint.

2. Since the new brayer is wider, when inking, hold the ink pad side to side instead of bottom to top.

3. Swipe the ink on to the brayer in one direction. Do not roll it back and forward. Test on a scrap paper to check if the ink is on the brayer evenly.

4. Always use a well inked pad.

5. Before applying ink to your paper make certain that the surface is clean as well as the cardstock.

6. Clean your brayer after each use with a damp cloth.

Play with your brayer and try using it with different techniques. Practice makes perfect.  I have a BRAYER CLASS scheduled in the CAT/ART STUDIO on Saturday morning, February 17, at ten.  Let me know if you are interested in joining me for some stampin' fun!
