  • How do you sign your work?

    Just wondering as Im trying to think of a way to let people know its made by me. As I use clay I was thinking of some sort of stamp or maybe a printed sticker. Anyone have any other ideas?

    Ta, muchly

    I'd do a little stamp on them, perhaps somewhere not too noticeable unless its a small item (feet!) then maybe on the side?

    As a very potential customer of your's () I'd acknowledge that I didn't make the feet on the back of the card and would do a web address link back to you.

    But yes, I think you need to stamp or sticker your work!!

      I just put a little sticker on the package letting them know it is handmade in Scotland (can be wherever you are based) and my company name and web address - it's only small so it doesn't take away the look of the candle.

      Cheers.

      P.S. the link should be working now!!!

            You can make yourself a tiny stamp and use this to stamp inside the brides dress and under the groom's arm (or his feet). If they are on a stand, that would be ideal, as you can stamp under the stand.

            Do you know how to make a stamp? if not, give us a shout and I'll try my best to guide you through it.

                  I sign my work with a doctors letter assuring the customer that whatever distressing symptoms of being an ex-social worker I have got, it isn't catching!

                  Actually I am making a thin mould that gives out the logo and name in silicone, which I can then heat with a hair drier so I can pour hot wax into it without the wax scaling as it would if it was poured into a cold mould. Then I can pop the wax mini-sculpture out and inset it into the back of whatever bit of wax will be the back of what I create. And then mould that larger piece itself.

                  Try peeling that logo off!

                      I decided to design myself a monogram awhile back so I just have a joined up B and a J for me and I usually put a year on.

                        Dear Topper of Cakes, most delectable of morsels, most sweetest of frootycakewonder, The irony is that someone else has my pen drive which has the images of my work engraved by little pixels upon it. Thus will I finally get to my twenty fifth post empty handed! But not for long I hope. it is a bit difficult explaining what I do, even to myself at times. The odd thing about making moulds for complex objects is that you are not exactly creating a thing. You are creating the space for the thing to be poured into, and when that thing is going to be functional as well as decorative, then make sure the headache pills are within reach....cos mould design is sort of construction in reverse. You make space rather than the finished object. Then you make the finished object...

                        Oh god I bet that sounds as clear as mud. It sort of worries me a little, that what I do isn't that common, so I will be at a loss to offer much advice and support and info to most other crafters here. I will do my best though.

                        And the fettling tool rocks! (think I will have that as my signature when I get around to it).
