Has it been awhile since you last used your Brayer? If so,
the following tips may entice you to pull it out of storage
and try something new.
Speaking of storage, have you ever reached to use your
rubber or foam Brayer only to find it has a "flat tire" or
"bumpy" feel to it as you roll it across your paper? This
could be a result of how the Brayer is being stored. Storing
it with the roller resting on the storage surface could result
in a flat spot in the rubber or foam, thus creating a "flat
tire" or "bumpy" feel. To avoid this from happening, we
recommend storing the Brayer with the rubber or foam pointed
up, free from touching the storage surface.
As you know, Brayers are wonderful tools for making special
effects backgrounds and also work wonders when inking our
larger stamps, but there are a few other uses that you may not
have considered. When using Sticky Strip to adhere Micro beads
to your layout or embellishments, it’s a good idea to press
them into the adhesive so they really stick. To do this, try
using the hard rubber Brayer.
After sprinkling on the beads and tapping off any excess,
place the beaded creation on a hard surface beaded side up.
Run the Brayer over the creation several times to really push
the beads into the adhesive, thus creating a much stronger
Here are a few more quick tips:
- wrap plastic food wrap around the Brayer roller before
inking on a pad
- experiment with paper doilies, Magic Mesh, lace and
other open-weave fabrics
- add dimensional texture by braying over bubble wrap or
other textured surfaces (leaves, buttons, coins) To do this,
just place the material on a flat surface and place your
paper over it. Ink your Brayer and roll over the paper,
revealing the textured surface beneath.
