Stamps are available in a variety of styles; anything from letter and number stamps in a variety of fonts (Photo 1) to large, elaborate design stamps. Use letter stamps to spell out phrases, but don’t underestimate their uses by thinking they can only be used to spell words. They can also be used to create all-over textures or patterns.
Place your metal on a steel bench block. Make sure your stamp is correctly oriented, and rest it on the metal. Gently rock it back and forth until you can feel that it’s flush with the metal.
