Place cube on stamping block. Position stamp of your choice in the center of the cube. Hold stamp flat and firmly in place by anchoring the side of your hand on workspace. Then strike the stamp once with medium force using Metal Stamping Hammer. Repeat for each side of the cube as desired.
TIP: If the stamp has an ImpressArt logo, make sure it is facing you so that the impression is stamped in the correct direction.
TIP: Hold stamp towards the bottom of the stamp shank. Use your fingers at the bottom of shank to pinch the top of the cube and hold it in place so it doesn't move while stamping.
TIP: Use a piece of stamp tape to secure the cube to the stamping block so it doesn't move while stamping. You will be able to stamp through the tape into the cube.
Highlight impressions with Stamp Enamel. Wait 3-5 minutes and then wipe away the excess enamel from the surface of the cubes.
