Reinkers

Reinkers are primarily used to reink or refresh a coordinating ink pad to extend the life of the pad.  Ranger manufactures reinkers for all ink pads sold including Tim Holtz Distress® Reinkers and Distress® Oxide® Reinkers, Archival Ink® Reinkers, Wendy Vecchi MAKE ART Blendable Dye Reinkers, Simon Hurley create. Dye Reinkers and Ranger Pigment Reinkers.  To reink any type of ink pad you simply add a few drops of ink from the reinker bottle onto the stamp pad and spread.

What else can I use my Ranger Reinkers for?

Creative crafters and mixed media artists have discovered many other ways to use reinkers in addition to refreshing their favorite ink pads.  Some other uses for these small bottles of ink include pouring a few drops into a palette to paint, watercolor, or splatter with.  Mix a few drops of reinker ink into other mediums such as texture paste, clay or resin to colorize and/or to marbleize.

One of our favorite ways to use the reinkers is to create a custom ink pad using one of our DIY Ink Pads. Creating a unique pad has endless options - it can be a custom blend, an ombre pad, a rainbow pad, or more.  Simple choose your colors and your pattern, apply a few drops and spread with a craft scrapper or squeegee.
