Ah, thanks. Well, with me, it'll only have to work once, hopefully. I'm working on a Phoenix design for a cane, and it's something I can't freehand and do a satisfactory job. I can freehand any of my other designs without qualms, but this one, as simple as the design actually is, is going to have to be very accurate to look good. So, I'm going to make a stamp, and stamp it on. Just need to get the design on the rubber, visible enough to follow the lines, and I'm good to go. Wintergreen oil, eh? I've got a couple of other ways I'm going to try first, but if they don't work, I'll give that a shot.

Actually, once I get the design on the cane I'll either use a woodburning tool to burn it, OR, I'll give chemically burning it on a shot - found a site explaining that, and the stamp will work with that also.

Thanks.

JOAT Richard, what did you tell her? Whatever, the results look very nice. Did I miss the a post or something? Whatever, it definitely looks like something I could use in a project I'm working on.

OutoftheWoodwork No sealer. Used those cotton rounds (not cotton balls they're round like applicators). I put just enough on the pad to get the paper transparent then rubbed back & forth like putting on decals. I'll try and do a short video showing how to use it. No running at all on the third try.

And you're too kind. You give me too much credit

gwizz did you put sealer on the wood first to keep the ink from running ? You got a lot better results that I ( but then again you do fine routing all the time that I couldn't imagine being patient enough to do ) .
