  • Letter stamps/punches for silver clay

    Hi
    I wondered if someone might be able to help me. I make charms and pendants using silver clay and am looking for letter stamps to stamp on names/messages etc. All the ones i have seen and used so far tend to be the same font. I am looking for something a little more usual or even quirky. Has anyone come across any?

    What are your letters made of? could you use the metal letterpress kind? They come in many different fonts.

        Metal jewellery stamp

        The stamps would be made of metal - but i have only ever seen those in one font type - do you know of anyone that does different font types?

          Thanks so much for that link! I've searched for something like this and never managed to find anything myself.

            You dont need to use metal for silver clay I use all sorts of things to get imprints and designs into the clay before firing, for example apart from the rubber stamps, a large paint brush dragged across it, a piece of lace rolled into it then peeled off, a piece of fine sandpaper dabbed on it, etc. etc, none of these are metal but because the silver clay is fairly soft they work

              Letter stamps

              Yes i have used other products too, however the letter stamps i am after are about 3mm in size and tend to be made of metal. Am currently using a rubber stamp kit from Stapples at the moment but am after something more artistic.

                Here's one supplier Cool Tools, that have some great fonts on Alphadisks
                http://www.cooltools.us/Express-your...Disc-s/139.htm
                Not too expensive either

                As a UK supplier they also have a few versions at http://www.silverclay.co.uk/ (in Texture moulds & cutters)
                (more convenient, really helpfull people & no import duty)

                If you want metal you can get custom sets made but they're £100's
                I tend to use either the Art Clay alphabet stamps (I have a few sets & leave my favourite words pre-set) OR I use a sharp point and write things freehand in leather hard clay (Silverclay has a usefull tool in their "tools" section called a "Pen Scriber")

                Hope this helps

                  could you not use polymer clay stamps and moulds for Silver clay?

                    Jewellery stamps

                    Hi yes i have one of those alphadiscs - but find them so difficult to use and the letters don't come out very clearly at all.

                      The only other alternative I know of is this
                      http://www.beaducation.com/shop/inde...roducts_id=846
                      It's a beautiful letter punch set, very funky in lower case.
                      (They will be producing a matching upper case one eventually)
                      As they are metal it's best to punch them on finished silver rather
                      than when in clay form.

                      If all else fails Beaducation can also produce custom stamps in
                      whatever font you like

                        letter stamps

                        Thanks so much Nic for that - have come across this site too - love their own stamps but are out of stop - have emailed them to see what the prices are etc.
                        Thanks again
