    Hi Beautiful and Sweet Daughter,

    I just loved this video… you took a project that I would have normally found intimidating and broke it down into easy-to-understand instructions. I particularly liked the way you showed us how to re-stamp a character in instances where we did not make full contact with the metal surface. Thank you for sharing one of your many talents and for introducing me to this website and the other wonderful artists. I love you, Mom

    Lexi I have to thank you for the awesome tip about the black dots for letter placement on your metal. Genius! Now why didn’t I think of that? I am curious, do you find stamping on other metals besides copper to be more difficult to get an impression? Or is it just me?

    Also why must I answer a math question to submit a comment?

    Thanks everyone for all your sweet comments and support!
    Ginger, you’re too funny…and I’m so glad you found this video useful. In response to your question, metals will totally vary (thickness etc)in how hard you have to strike. Sometimes you simply need a couple more taps…I always do a test first. But I have to admit, brass & copper are my two favorites to metal stamp in.
    Regarding the math question…it just wants to make sure you’re a real person:P But yah, it cracks me up too!!
    Ciao’ Everyone!
