These are the colours available .
Now the first question that comes to the mind !
Are these similar to Distress inks. Or, What are Distress Oxide inks ????
So let us see!!!!
Distress oxide inks have a composition of both due and pigment ink making it more opague and chalk like unlike the distress inks .
They are reactive with water .
They give an oxidised look when reacting with water.

So let us see some techniques using the Distress Oxide Inks.

These are good for distressing..giving a smooth non-patchy look. But does not have the transparent hue as in distress inks. However flawless blending can be achieved when distressing with oxide inks.

We can create beautiful backgrounds with Distress oxide inks.

Distress oxide inks are good for stamping give crisp images

                         Note the difference between Distress inks and oxide inks in stamping

Gives a beautiful look to die cuts, spreading evenly



Can get wonderful results with stencils


                                             Distress oxide inks are very good for painting

          General stamping can be achieved beautifully on distressed oxide ink background


             Look at the beautiful effect of oxidised spritzed background-when water is spritzed

                                       Distress oxide inks are wonderful for heat embossing
