All of our Design Stamps (punches) are made from heat-treated tool grade steel. To work successfully with Design Stamps and punches, place the metal you want to stamp on a hardened steel bench block. The bench block must be on a firm flat surface. Do not use a sand bag or any other padding below. The bench block needs to rest directly on a flat hard surface. Hold the punch perfectly straigh. Use a 16 oz utility hammer to hit the end of the stamp. Ideally the impression should be made with one blow. Practice with copper until you can get a good impression with one blow.
Use to stamp the image into brass, copper, bronze or silver sheet metal or blanks. Can also be used to design in metal clay and other soft clays.
