Ink Blending Tool, Hand Crafted By Mike (The owner himself)
This delightful hand made Ink Blending Tool is known as the "Item that started it all". When Jane, Mike's wife complained the commonly sold ink blenders hurt her hand to use, Mike went to work looking for a solution. As he sat on the steps next to her crafting room discussing it with her, he looked up at the handrail and this tool was born. Mike cuts good quality hand rail and sands each one he makes. He then layers them with Scotch Brand foam tape, velcro, and finally an ink blending pad. The surface is between 1/8 - 1/4 inch narrower then the commonly sold blending tools most of us are familiar with, this is due to using the handrail; however, they use the same ink blending pads, they are just trimmed down to fit. So when you need to change them out, you can buy the readily available ink pads sold in the store or that you might have in your stash, you do not need to buy special ink pads for them. They come nicely sanded and ready to use. They are extremely comfortable to use! Literally 100's of these have been sold around the world.
Here are a few snippets of "Feedback" from some of the many happy customers who have purchased these great Ink Blenders:
