Alkeme is a precision milled tin-based alloy developed by ImpressArt specially for hand-stamping. This soft metal makes it easy to stamp deep crisp impressions. The soft silver color is similar to sterling silver and the fine milled surface can be brought to a high shine or to a matte finish. The name Alkeme is a nod to the age-old alchemist who searched for ways to transmute base metals into precious silver and gold.
These Alkeme rounds are great to create mandalas and to make little ring dishes because it is so easy to hammer out. It takes impressions very nicely. I will definetly be purchasing more of these.
I plan to make trinket dishes with these. Such a cute size. Lots of tiny, fine scratches, but I hope to cover them with stamping or texture.
