Distress inks

With Distress Ink you can make paper look old, vintage, or damaged. This ink is acid free, not poisonous and dries slowly. That gives you time to mix, swipe and emboss.

Distress Ink reacts to water, it runs out further and faster than other inks.

This way you can create special effects with water.

The colours do not change or fade by heating.


The Distress Oxide Ink Pads are a surprising fusion of water-reactive dies and pigmentink. When this comes in contact with water a cool oxidized, chalky effect is created.

Use Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide in combination with Ink Blending Tools and Foam to blend colours.
