Use the Rusty Hinge Distress Stain by Tim Holtz for Ranger Ink on paper projects or on other porous surfaces. This water-based dye is fluid for quick ink coverage on backgrounds. Mist it with water for a mottled effect and to lighten the color. Create layers of stain for a more saturated effect. The bottle has a brushed nylon tricot dabber with a built-in spring valve. It holds 1 oz. of stain.
