Step 1

Place rectangular prism on stamping block. Position stamp of your choice on the prism. 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 to complete desired word. Stamp each side of the prism 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 prism and hold it in place so it doesn't move while stamping.

Tip: Use a piece of stamp tape to secure the prism to the stamping block so it doesn't move while stamping. You will be able to stamp through the tape into the cube.

Step 2

Highlight impressions with Stamp Enamel. Wait 3-5 minutes and then wipe away the excess enamel from the surface of the prism.

Step 3

To create a necklace, slide the ball chain through rectangular prism and clasp chain. To create a keychain, attach a split key ring to rectangular prism.
