Reinkers are an inexpensive way to extend the life of your Scrapbook.com Premium Ink Pads. To use, simply shake the bottle, squeeze a few drops on the ink pad surface and work the ink evenly into the pad with the bottle nozzle. It’s that easy! Now your Scrapbook.com ink pad is rejuvenated and ready for more creative projects.
But don’t limit the reinker to just extending the life of your ink pad - it has many other creative uses as well! Here are some fun ideas of what else you can use them for:
What is the difference between dye, pigment and hybrid ink?
Dye inks are water-based and literally dye your paper. The ink is soaked up by the paper or cardstock so they tend to dry fast. Pigment inks are made of tiny particles that will sit on top of your paper and will take a longer time to dry. They tend to be brighter, with a denser saturation of color and work well with dark colors of cardstock. They are also great for heat embossing since they stay wet longer. Hybrid inks are the best of the two ink types (dye and pigment) as they have properties of both inks. They also tend to be more translucent in their appearance. Hybrid inks are suitable for all skill levels of crafters due to their compatibility with multiple mediums and surfaces.

If you want to add special, shiny touch for your projects - think ink is a perfect answer. It works great while applying through the stencil. It's quite thick and need some time to dry. When it's dry the shimmer stays in place and doesn't come off. You can also dylute it with water and use for splashing. Reinker is a must have as you will want to rewet your pad often to keep it running smoothly.
I enjoyed using this ink today. I put a few drops on my glass mat and used a paintbrush to splatter it on the paper. I then mixed it with a few drops of silver ink. The combination was very pretty. It mixed well with the other pigment ink. So many ideas for this!
These metallic ink pad reinkers are great for techniques, too! I used them to create shiny droplets on my cards by diluting them with water and that works great! Can't wait to experiment more!
