I like to make mini books and think a brayer to help smooth the paper would be a good idea.

Can anyone recommend a good one? All I find are ink brayers. Can I use one of those?


TIA!

I have used a soft rubber brayer for years and it's never touched an ounce of ink. I recently purchased the Speedball 6" soft rubber brayer with heavy duty steel frame and I'm very happy with it. The roller is longer and the handle sturdier than my previous brayer, although the previous one worked very well for me for years. I use mine to help smooth paper I am adhering and I also roll it over letters I have adhered to my LO's, too. Mine was about $14. It's a great tool!

I use them too. I don't recall the names as I have had them for years. Mine have never touched ink either. They are two diff sizes with thick rubber and nice handles for easy gripping. Don't go for the cheap. Go for comfort and also get a nice one that will last many years. Coupons are your friend.

You certainly CAN use a hard rubber brayer (ink brayer)...Ranger puts out 3 sizes of Inkssentials brayers. I use them all the time after gluing paper to chipboard. My soft rubber brayers are used in art journaling (spreading gesso, etc.)

I use the Speedball one. I picked it up at Hobby Lobby in the silk screen section.
