Original art by Sue Coccia
Animal Spirits are inspired drawings in pen and ink.
The drawing depicts images or totems from around the world. Animal totems represent a deep spirituality and by beginning to understand animal's qualities and traits we can learn form them.
The original intricate pen & ink drawings were meticulously hand painted with acrylic paints. Look for the ladybug in every image: she represents good luck, happiness and prosperity.
We offer these images in clear stamps and in rubber stamps. As we sell out of the clear stamps we will switch to rubber stamps.
Clear unmounted, approx 3" x 4" in size
About Sue's stamps:
With proper care clear stamps will likely outlive their owners. The fact is that the photopolymer used for making clear stamps was originally used and in many cases is still used for commercial business stamps. That means the FAXED TODAY, RECEIVED ON, commercial stamps used by banks and post offices - the dies are mostly all made with photopolymer. The business stamps used in a commercial environment get used 10 to 40 or more times per day. These commercial stamps - even when being used multiple times per day often last 10 - 15 and even 20 years. Actually, folks end up changing the data they need to stamp before the stamp ever wears out. So if you compare that kind of abuse to the limited use a stamp gets in the creative stamping and scrapbooking applications - it's easy to see where the stamps could last for 20 - 30 years or more. Also, solvent inks and cleaners will attack the photopolymer if left in contact with it.
As long as they are cleaned immediately - it's not a problem to use solvent inks.
Sue does not recommend using solvent cleaners - the best cleaner for any stamp, clear or rubber is Ultra Clean.
Please Note: We are selling out of the clear unmounted stamps and continuing with the rubber cling stamp.
