I may be awarded the wooden spoon for this but I cant resist :wink: :twisted: but there are temperature sensitive inks I have a Clarecraft mug that starts out as black and revels a nice picture when hot water is poured onto the tea. How about the Fahrenheit 450 Patrician coat of arms :?: proper black on black with extreme risk temperature sports :wink: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :!: :!: :!: :!:

Well those friction erasable pens use ink that turns invisible with heat. Of course I think it's only one way so you have the added wibbling of collectors about 'I want to see the cool effect... but then the stamp is not mint... *brain explosion*' :twisted: So we KNOW that ink works on paper just fine.

There's already a Penny Moist sheet on eBay and it looks like the cheeky devil has pinched the Emporium's photos of it! Grrrr :roll:

I wondered how long it would be before one surfaced on there. They haven't just used one if the Emporiums photos either...they've used all of them.

For want of nothing than a bit of fun I have designated the colours as

Code: Select all
Orange     Forest Green  Purple
Mauve      Olive Green   Rust
Turquoise  Indigo        Apple Green
           Slate

Some may notice that five of the stamps colours spell MOIST

I've got an extra one. Would I get that much if I put it on ebay?
