DIY Metal Stamping Tutorial with The Impressart Stamping Kit:
There is a wide variety of metal blanks offered by the Impressart brand such as Bracelets, Circles, Medals, Pet Tags, Rings, earrings and many more.
To get started, you can stamp the blank items that come with the kit.
This time, I’m stamping a 1 “diameter Alkeme metal circle.
1.- Let’s clean the block with a piece of paper towel and put the rubber pads behind the metal block.
1.- Place the piece of metal to be stamped on top of the block. Secure the top part using the adhesive tape that comes with the kit and place a guide sticker on the bottom part.
2. Let’s write the word that we want to stamp on the guide sticker and prepare the pins with the letters that form the word to be stamped.
3. – Align the metal pin with the corresponding letter on the front.
4. – Hammer once with a little force and voila, we have the first letter stamped on the metal. Now let’s do the same until we finish with all the other letters.
5.- Remove the adhesive tape and guiding sticker and paint the pattern using the dark enamel marker. Wait for about 3 to 5 minutes and then wipe out with a piece of paper towel.
