Tim Holtz Distress Ink

by Ranger

Ranger Distress Inks are a collection of twenty-four acid-free, non-toxic, fade resistant, water-based dye inks. They’re perfect for the new vintage, stained, aged effect crafters are creating in their altered books, scrapbook pages, cards, and paper craft projects.

These inks produce a realistic, weathered look on paper, photos, and decorative fibers. All the colorful Distress Inks afford added versatility when photo tinting and color layering.

Inked pads measure 2 in. x 2 in. and are made with a higher raised felt for easier use with direct to paper techniques.

Reinker bottles of each color are also available. The bottles are 1/2 oz. (15 ml) and have eye drop applicator caps.

This is the best ink I have ever used. Ranger is the best.
Rated by: Virginia A. in Highland Mills, NY
These inks are wonderful, they blend very well, allow you to add great effects when combined with water. These inks also can be used to add bits of color to black and white photo copies. The colors are slightly muted and warm, and yet they have really intense color. All the colors work well together as well. While I have many types of inks, I find myself using these more often.
Rated by: Fran V. in Woodstock, VT
I have used the product before and am impressed with the ease and consistency of result. HOWEVER, I was most impressed with the wide range of products offered by MisterArt.com...... PLUS the quick and efficient shipping. I am so glad I found this art supply source. The supplier/MisterArt staff deserves TEN Stars!

Terrific ink at a terrific price. I've searched many art supply websites but MisterArt.com, by far, is the absolute best. I recommend it to anyone & everyone who needs quality art materials/supplies at a terrific price. The customer service is A #1 and shipping is super fast. The best!

Well when I first tried these, I was not impressed. However, after trying them again, I was hooked. I distress anything and everything :D great alone, but even better with the Tim Holtz (ranger) blender tool
Rated by: fern l. in Arlington, MA
I LOVE this product. With a small amount of effort you can achieve some really interesting, impressive results. These inks can be used for distressing, antiquing or just stamping. Its a high quality, fun item to use. My only problem with these inks is that I am now addicted and I MUST own them all.
Rated by: Raquel d. in Alexandria, VA
Excellent product. The ink pads produce great result, crisp stamped images and interesting effects on direct to paper.
Rated by: C. R. in Garden Valley, CA
I love these colors--they are quite different from all other brands I've tried because they vary from the usual red, yellow, green, blue, etc. Also, the pad surface seems to have a bit of texture which comes through when I use the pad itself as a stamp to apply ink directly to paper.
Rated by: Reba K. in Joliet, IL
Ranger Distress Inks are the best I've ever used. The colors in the bottles are gorgeous and vibrant. I have done many techniques using these inks and pads and like them very much.
Rated by: Rena B. in Boise, ID
This is one of the most versatile ink products on the market! With Tim's instruction, you could color the world!! We LOVE Tim!
Rated by: Yael B. in Los Angeles, CA
I like stamping with these Pads, the colors are beautiful and the given effect is perfect, I recommend this product A LOT.
Rated by: Nancy K. in Los Angeles, CA
Ranger has created a fabulous line of inks so that you can work in several mediums and still maintain color coordination--each ink playing its own role in your creativity! I wouldn't think of edging my cards with any other distressing ink.
Rated by: Leone G. in Gilbert, AZ
These are not your normal ink pads. Until I took a class from Tim Holtz, I just assumed they were like all the others. Use the reinkers with the little spray bottles that are sold by Ranger...one drop ink to the amount of water the little bottles hold...you can do all kinds of great techniques with them. Look through Tim Holtz distressing books/CDs to get ideas.
Rated by: Ramona B. in Tucson, AZ
They are the best ink pads. I have one in every color. Easy to use several ways. Great with embossing powders.
Rated by: Diana P. in Longmont, CO
GREAT product! I used them as soon as I got them, and they were everything I had heard about them.
Rated by: Lynn B. in Chico, CA
I love the distressed ink. Versatile and the colors are vivid.
Rated by: Victoria B. in Wichita, KS
These are my most used ink pads that I own. I love the colors and they give a nice distressed look to my projects. You can't beat the price either.
