    Best ink for stamping leather

    Anyone have any idea which ink works best for stamping on leather? I got a very good deal on some leather and would like to make somethings out of it, using rubber stamps, but do not know the best ink.

    Thanks
    Nicole

    What will you be using the leather for? I know you can draw on the leather using sharpie markers, but using that for ink would damage your stamps. If you used water based ink, i would be concerned that the dye would spread and bleed. You can get leather sealants from Tandy Leather, but I don't know how that would react with ink. It could bleed worse.

    FYI :)

    I looked into it, and DYE based inks are best and then covered with Leather sheen, which does come from Tandy leather...:)

    For about $18 you can get metal stamps buy a rubber mallet and pound away, no ink required. You will probably want to dampen the leather to make it a little softer so it acepts the pounding better.
