Step 1:

Metal Stamping Techniques

Plan what you want to say. Prepare by texturizing Stamping Blanks if required and secure Stamping Blank to Steel Stamping Block with Stamp Straight Tape.

Step 2:

Mark out spacing of the word on tape as a guideline. Start in the middle of the word and stamp each letter to the left & right of the centre. One firm hit with a Brass Hammer will leave an impression.

Step 3:

Highlight the impression with a fine marker pen or acrylic paint and remove excess and polish with cloth. To finish make a hole & add Jump ring for jewellery or place stamped piece on craft.
