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 was looking for some Fox stamps online and found this. I really like the look of this one. it can be a little tricky to stamp, and I find I definitely need to do the tilting method. My only complaint is that I wish the outline was a little bit thicker, he doesn't always show up as well as I'd like. Still a nice design though.
I have to agree with the other reviewer. This little guy is really cute but I wish the lines were thicker. I was hoping to use it in an etched project but I think the lines are just too thin to make it work. Still, he is adorable and if you're careful with titling you will get a good impression.
I have to agree with the other reviewers. This is a cute stamp, but the lines are too fine, so it doesn't show up well. I tried the tilt and tap method and also my 2 lb hammer. Even had my hubby give it a good whack, but that only dented it, didn't make it show up more. It worked better on the scrap copper I used to practice, but not as well on the aluminum blanks. Had hopes of using it for a project I'm making for Senior Night and the fox is the school mascot. But I think I'll have to come up with something else.
