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 call this my eyelash stamp! I love that I can use it in so many ways! Leaves a great impression with one stamp!
I really like this stamp, it's very versatile to use; half sun designs, border stamp, eyelashes, full sun when aligned together, etc. It is a little difficult to get an even impression though, requiring either multiple hits or using the tilt n' tap method. Personally, I find the best way to get an even impression is to use the tilt n' tap method with this stamp (^v^)
