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.

Very crisp lines on this stamp. It does require one heck of a whack or a couple of them. Overall, I do love it!
The fact that this stamp is always out of stock should automatically tell you that it's an awesome stamp ;) The design is clear, lines sharp and crisp, and the large size is great for being able to appreciate such a wonderful design. It does take a good solid whack with a heavier weight hammer, but oh so worth it! I'd been wanting this stamp and on the waitlist for it for a long time and am so glad to finally have it, it's awesome! (^v^)
This is a wonderful stamp. I never thought I needed a pirate ship stamp until mermaid fever struck! It makes a beautiful impression and is a great size for creating collage images on pendants. I have many design ideas for this stamp both on its own and with the new mermaids... thank you!
