Let's Stamp Some Metal!

I was so excited to be provided with a set of ImpressArt Metal Stamps from PJTool & Supply!!

I had a chance to run out to the craft store today to look for some metal to stamp! I received this set last week and similar to having money in the pocket or gift cards after the holidays, I HAD to find something to stamp!

I love the idea of sharing this experience with you since I am a COMPLETE AMATEUR when it comes to stamping!

I've never done it, but the funny thing is, prior to this opportunity I had been trying to figure out how to get some words into my jewelry pieces!! WOW, I thought at first this was ironic, but I think it was just meant to be!! :)

I can't wait to show you what I found and would LOVE to hear from experienced metal stampers as I make my way through this process.

This stamping set is described on the PJ Tool & Supply website as follows, "Designed by artists for artists, ImpressArt metal stamps will make a lasting impression on your jewelry. These professional quality stamps are manufactured to the highest standard for durability and alignment. Letters are precision-cut from carbon tool steel, hardened to last project after project.

The perfect balance between elegant and whimsical, ImpressArt's Ballroom Boogie stamps add just enough flair to your name plates and pendants - without sacrificing readability. Dance away!

Size: 1/8"(3mm) - Will stamp soft metals including gold, silver, copper, brass, soft steel, aluminum and also wood . Stamps are made of carbon tool steel, hardened to last project after project. Stamp set comes in individual plastic case. In order to prevent rust, our stamp sets are lightly coated with oil. Simply wipe down with a dry paper towel or rag before using. (Avoid wiping with anything wet - water will cause stamps to rust.)"

If you're still playing with polymer clay they are fabulous to lightly impress into the clay and if you make a mistake just squish it up and start again.
