Here are some tips I found while I was working with the Goosebumps:
- Clean your stamps IMMEDIATELY after you use them with a good cleaner like Ultra Clean.
- Be careful because the Goosebumps may permanently stick to your acrylic blocks or will take lots of work to remove (sigh!)
- IMMEDIATELY clean the whole Goosebumps pump with soapy hot water after you use it or it will get clogged. I thought I just needed to rinse it off but you really need to remove it and clean it all thoroughly.
- It will still clog the tip of the sprayer so be sure to clean it with a pin and do some test spritzing before use or you will get blotchy sprays.
- I was unable to get good results with the technique where they used a brass stencil. Maybe my tip was too clogged and blotchy.
- I was unable to get good results with the technique where they used a clean stamp to remove the goosebumps from the paper. Maybe I was spraying too much Goosebumps onto the paper (again, could be the clogged tip)
- I learned this was a little too much trouble to be my favorite technique but I did like the cards I ended up with.
