Dirty stamps. 🙌😍 I don’t clean the paint off of my foam stamps. 💪 And it’s fine. They still work great and (a) I have more time to be creative because I’m not cleaning and (b) I use my stamps because I know that I don’t have to clean them! (Can you tell that I really hate cleaning?!) 😜 #ihatecleaning

    I had one brand of Ink that would show back up In the next image if I didn’t clean it all off. Guess which brand I don’t buy anymore? Cleaning. Whose got time for that nonsense? 😜

    I hate cleaning as well. Good to know they will work fine if you don’t clean them off. I watched a video where the woman said to ‘make sure you clean them right away’
    Happy to hear I don’t have to as I have lots coming my way!!!! I’m guessing some designed by you too!!!!

    @deniselush I've ruined my hand carved rubber stamps by not cleaning acrylic paint off right away. Makes them sticky.

    @floridafour Yes, always clean rubber, silicone, and hand carved stamps. But foam stamps don’t need cleaning.

    Thanks for the tip! I’ve been cleaning my foam stamps and because I don’t like cleaning, I find that I barely use them. 🙄

    Don’t they get stiff after awhile and lose some of their detail?

    If you don’t have time just put the ArtFoamies face down in a tub of water next to you and gently pat dry afterwards. I like to use a spray nozzle (which you rinse dishes with) to rinse mine. However I have found that not cleaning some paint off makes for a better “print” sometimes. Also don’t use the very cheap paint with it - it ruins the stamps as the acrylic base they add to those brands is so thick and glucky - it totally destroys detail and you can never get it off again. I say clean your stamps, but mostly I don’t clean them either!!! :)
