- Lift stamp straight off ATC and wash immediately. If using same stamp again, simply wipe clean between impressions for clearest results.
- Create a total of 12 ATCs, setting aside each completed card.
- Seal ATCs first with a few light coats of varnish, and then with a few light coats of matte finish. Spray from 12”-18” away and let dry between coats. Apply varnish first to preserve rich color of soot. Let dry.
