I am so excited this week to share my newest passion with you: stamping tin.
Now, from the title and the name, you are probably picturing something different than what I am actually doing.
I am melting tin and then stamping it with rubber stamps.
What I get it these amazing pieces.
Some of these are almost paper thin.
It is a learning process to see what rubber stampers work the best.
It depends on what you are hoping for.
These butterfly pieces have a large design with a lot of rubber to displace the tin.
These coins were made from a silicone mold made from a jewelry charm.
These pieces used some of those silicone molds I made a few weeks ago with the botanicals from the yard.
I love the texture of these.
I did a bunch with one of my favorite child face stampers.
I think it is neat how it is sort of an abstract image.
The angle has to be just right to see what it is.
I also did some with script stamps.
Some have irregular edges.
I am starting to learn how to control the tin.
Some are more round like coins.
My husband is the key to the success of the process.
The way I created them is a two person process I will share later.
I cannot wait to show you how they look when they are patinaed and used in designs later.
Thanks for stopping by....
