Distress Ink

The Distress Ink range, developed by Tim Holtz at Ranger is a delight to work with!

What sets Distress Inks apart from the others?

They stay wet longer: which means you can blend and shade on photos and paper without leaving lines and marks like other faster drying dye inks.  Their slow drying property means you can even use them for embossing! 

Their colours wicks or spreads out: these inks will travel across the surface of your paper when spritzed with water, much further than other dyes creating several tone on tones in the process. 

Colour Stability: their colours won't break down when wet or heated, which allows you to have more colour control for the finished look.  Other "brown coloured" dyes will break down when water is added leaving a pink & green hue.    

Colour Range: a great palette of colour which co-ordinate with the wider distress ink range.

Application: comes in a broad range of ink types, stamp pads & reinkers, Distress stains and now the Distress markers to match.
