How to Transfer a Hand Stamp With Hairspray

By Chrissy Taylor

A hand stamp has many uses. It can be a fancy design, a signifier of acceptance to a club or a mark of entry into an event. For a friend who doesn't have a stamp, it just signifies their being left out. Now this can all be changed. All it takes is a can of hairspray, some clear packing tape and a steady hand.

Hairspray is the key ingredient to an easily transfered hand stamp.

Step 1

Hold the aerosol hairspray bottle at least 6 inches away from the hand that has the stamp on it. Spray the stamp with a light coating of hairspray, which will re-wet the ink.

Step 2

Take a piece of packing tape and gently but firmly press the tape over the now-wet hand stamp. Apply equal pressure to all parts of the tape to ensure even transfer.

Step 3

Apply the piece of tape that has the stamp transfer on it to the hand that does not have a stamp on it. Again, press gently but firmly while applying equal pressure to all parts of the tape. Remove the tape slowly.
