A great stamp pad for beginners! ColorBox Chalk Inkpads create a flat, muted finish resembling the effect of chalk pastels. Light colors can be stamped over dark colors and inks will not bleed together giving you flexibility in design. Quick drying on absorbent papers, and therefore not ideal for embossing. Archival when dry and fade resistant so your work of art can stand the test of time! Non-toxic water-based pigment ink.
