On a Sunday I often go to our local "trash and treasure" style market, located close by in Camberwell.
Today I found a 'J' stamp for stamping metal. I do already have a full alphabet set of letters for stamping on to metal...but they are only about 4mm in height, from memory.
This letter is 12mm, so I decided to risk it. I say risk it.......as I was a little unsure if the letter was actually going to be a good, clear imprint.
I raced home to give it a try.....stamped it on some (unannealed) copper.........probably could have got a better result on the softer metal.
Anyway, further play will probably tell me it is o.k....but possibly not fantastic!
Metal 'J' stamp
A quick stamp on copper shows me the curve is a little thin! What happened to the J's "hat?"
Old bottles at the market....Orangeade and Sarsparilla.
Today I am linking up to Lori's I Heart macro at Studio Waterstone.
Check it out for photos of a macro nature...it's for "up Close Photography for Macro Makers and the Cameralogically Challenged!"
Cheers for now,
