How to Make Tin Stamped Christmas Ornaments : How to Stamp Tin Designs for Christmas Ornaments


Hello, this is Marie French from Expert Village
and here we are going to stamp a design onto tin. First we are going to start with the
circle that we have cut and filed. Then what I am going to do is I am going to choose four
different stamps that I will be using on this design. One is a line, sort of like small
diagonals that make up a horizontal line, a small circle punch, a radiating star punch,
and a diamond punch. Here I am going to take the circle and I am thinking how I want this
design to go. So I am actually going to start with taking the circle design and going in
a radiating circle, or spiral, as the centerpiece. So I am going to hammer it down and make my
spiral in the center. And then I am going to go ahead and take my diamond and I am going
to work that around radiating from that spiral. Now I am going to go ahead and take my lines,
okay, and work those at the outer edge, okay? So that we radiate again outward. So that
the stamping takes on a whole circular effect, almost like a mondala. Here we are relief
stamping. This is Marie French with Expert Village and what we are going to do here is
kind of combine relief stamping and stamping. So here I have my relief block, of course
it has the indentation for the design. Then I am going to set my tin and here is the piece
that is actually going to punch that design into the tin. So now I am going to level it
off. I have little dots on the back to equalize it to the dots on the other. First I am going
to start off with small hits to start to get the design into the tin. Then I am going to
have to hit it really, really hard to get down to the relief. So we will get a little
relief here working with those two stamps. Now I am going to add in the design by taking
the smaller stamps and stamping a radiating pattern around the centerpiece. One good hard
blow should do it. You don’t want to do a soft blow because it will not make an indentation
in the tin. So you actually to give it a pretty good smack. Again going around, we should
be getting the pattern worked into the tin.
