Lin Chia Ning - Records of the Moon metal stamp
Original sketch turned into a metal stamp,
Wooden handle with a metal decorative nail on top.
Wooden handle: 75x30x30 mm
Pattern: 26x70 mm
There are some tool marks on the stamp,
they won't affect the stamping pattern,
it's a normal circumstance.
Also, the wood handle might content some wood knobs and tiny cracks,
it's the feature of the wood,
these won't be considered as the defective conditions.
The foam between the metal and the wood could provide some help,
it would be better if using a rubber mat under the paper while stamping.
Metal stamps are very hard surfaces.
A rubber mat or soft pad would be helpful.
Oil-based stamp pad plus thinner papers would bring the best outcome.
