I ordered a set of steel letter stampers from eBay with the intention of using them to imprint wet silver clay before firing.
My first experiment was a simple but effective one...
A little nod to comic books. I really love this, it is for myself but I am going to make some more for my shop definitely. The edges are a little pointy and therefore sharp, not enough to be used as an offensive weapon, handy enough for cleaning fingernails perhaps? Ew! I think the next attempt will need to be a little smoother.
I used liver of sulphar to blacken it, then cleaned it back to silver again, leaving a little blackness to the imprinted letters so they stood out more.
What do you think?
