Stamps for Clay, Pottery

I get quite a few orders for stamps to use for clay projects.

People have used them on pottery, Sculpey, Play Doh, Precious Metal Clay (PMC) jewelry, and tiles.

I make these stamps extra deeply etched so they leave a good deep impression.

They can be used with a block for flat surfaces or pressed by hand without a block to work around curved surfaces.

Another neat idea is to stamp on clay using slip as the "ink" (see this link)

There are quite a few interesting videos on YouTube to give you some more ideas for stamping on clay.

Family Stamp, Pet Stamp

Here we are on a family rubber stamp, as you can see, a typical happy family.

The kids are not so little now…..John is off to University in the Fall and Laura will be in Grade 11!

The family design was made by a lovely artist from the West Coast.

If you would like her to make up a family stamp for you, check out her website, or just contact me and I will work with her.

Here is a stamp of Amy, my trusty sidekick. Amy is a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier.

Wheatens are a godsend for a family with many allergies, until we met Amy a dog was out of the question for us.

I make a lot of pet stamps, just send me your photo!
