What Are The Differences Between Stamping On Wood vs Metal?
Metal stamping as the name suggests centres around making impressions on different types of metals, however it's worth remembering that metal stamping tools are often used on many other materials such as leather and wood. If you've traditionally stamped on metal and are making the transition to other materials here are 3 things you may want to bear in mind.
The amount of force required to imprint on wood is significantly less than for metal so it would be advisable to try some test stamps first so you can adjust your strength and not blur the impressions on the wood.
The traditional enamel ink used to darken metal tends to bleed into wood and fabrics so ball point and gel pens are a better option for darkening your impressions on wood.
The space afforded on fabric and wood tends to be larger so if you're used to working with small metal blanks, you will need to adjust your proportions to stamp evenly on these larger materials.
