Design Stamps are a bit tricky. I highly recommend you practice on some cheap metal before diving into your Sterling Silver or Gold Filled. Click here to purchase a piece of copper sheet for practicing.
For best results with Design Stamps, make sure there is NO padding under your Bench Block, make sure you are working on a stable table, and use a hammer which weighs at least 16 ounces. We recommed a Brass Head Mallet. Feel free to hit the stamp more than once, but hold the stamp steady, making sure you don't shift at all between hits. The more confident you are with the hammer and the strength behind it, the better your impression will be.

I love all the vine stamps and this is no exception. I usually tilt it side to side with two whacks and haven't had any trouble getting a good impression. It works great in flower designs as well as in a mandala design.
A fantastic embellishment stamp and VERY versatile. Try using it as a border, FUN!
