Tips From Tim - Adirondack Pigment Markers

Adirondack Pigment Markers by Tim Holtz

Ranger’s Adirondack Pigment Markers are different from any other marker you have tried before – trust me on this. Here’s why: these markers are a water-based pigment – yes PIGMENT, but not like your pigment pads (those are glycerin based). Other markers are water-based dye, like a dye stamp pad. So the Adirondack markers work on porous or non-porous surfaces, permanent on slick surfaces, but blendable while wet – no other marker can do this! This means you can color many surfaces and still blend the colors while wet, but it is permanent when heat-set. Here are some project surface ideas:

VELLUM PAPER –One of my favorite uses for the Adirondack Markers. Stamp and emboss your image on vellum. Turn the paper over and color the back side of the vellum with the pens. Blend out color lines as well as adding shadows and highlights in coordinating Adirondack colors using your finger or nib.

GLOSSY PAPER –These pens work great on glossy paper. Both permanent and non-smearing this allows you to stamp and color images on glossy paper. Try brayering backgrounds with Adirondack Pads, stamping in Archival Ink, and accenting your stamped image with the Adirondack Markers.

FABRIC –Create accents for your art projects using Adirondack markers on fabrics. Stamp image in Archival Ink, color image with Adirondack Markers, even accent and outline your image with the pens. Turn fabric over and heat-set the back side using a hot iron for a few minutes. This sets the ink making it permanent and washable. You can also accent your quilts, and batik fabrics with the palette of colors only found in the Adirondacks.

DOMINOES –One of the hottest trends in the stamp world today. The Adirondack markers can be applied to dominoes directly and blended using a nib or your finger. Also try to “blitz” the color on using a marker Blitzer found in your craft store. Color the tops, sides, and more with the Adirondack Markers. Heat setting these pens provides immediate handling ability. Stamp your images in Archival Inks or Décor-It, heat set also.

ACETATE –Create the look of stained glass with the adventurous colors of the Adirondack Markers. Stamp your image with Décor-It on acetate and color the back side of the image with the pens. For added texture try crumpling up tissue paper, covering the back side of the colored acetate with Glossy Accents, and then laying the tissue over the top. Turn it back over and you have a textured marbled background.

SHRINK PLASTIC –Finally the perfect marker for shrink plastic. Stamp your image with Archival or Décor-It inks. Color the shrink plastic with Adirondack Markers, but be sure to color lightly as the colors WILL intensify once the plastic shrinks. The look is bold, colorful, and most of all permanent.

WOOD –The Adirondack Markers provide a wonderful palette for coloring on wood. Stamp image with Décor-It or Archival ink on your wood project. Color the image with Adirondack Markers and wood burn the design to highlight your work.

METAL –With the altered look being so popular, stamping on metal objects has become such fun. Try stamping on Aluminum with Décor-It ink, embossing with a stylus tool, and coloring your stamped image with Adirondack Markers. The colors come to life with the reflection of metallic.

SCRAPBOOKING –Of course the Adirondack Markers would be complete if you couldn’t use them on scrapbooks right? The archival, non-toxic, acid-free abilities of these pens make them a must have. Use them for journaling, outlining, stenciling, and more.
