For embossing ink, use any color of Rit Dye, 1/4 tsp. alcohol, and 5 Tbsp. glycerin. Carefully blend dye and alcohol till it is the consistency of thin cream; starting with 1/2 tsp. of powdered dye and continue adding 1/8 tsp. at a time until it is like thin cream. Add glycerin. Blend well. Pour homemade ink over a stamp pad or a fine grain foam rubber pad. Spread the ink evenly with a brush, Popsicle stick, or the back of a spoon.
Note: To use small sponges as ink pads, cut compressed sponges into thin strips while dry, and add ink. It will create a thin smooth ink pad.
