A brayer... this is the rubber paint roller looking thing you probably have had since you first started rubber stamping. Well, have you used it lately?

In class you will learn how to apply ink to cardstock with the brayer to make scenes or backgrounds and turn them into four wonderful cards. Get tips on care of your brayer and several other techniques to use the brayer with. So come to class to re-learn how much fun this old tool can be. If you do not have a brayer or would like a new one, Stamp Asylum will have them in stock. Excellent for this technique really great 4" soft rubber ones!
