Thanks very much for posting this project and the tutorial.  I love working with PMC and have thought of creating my own stamps for it, but wasn't sure how to get started. It's also a good idea to cut around the stamped out image that you make.  Did you invent that technique as far as you know?

Four eyed girl, woo, someone from Indiana!  Where are you from?  I'm from NW Indiana, but I go to school in Lafayette...

Neigung, nope, I didn't invent the technique!  I have adjusted it to fit my needs, but the basics of it are something I learned in an advanced class.  Also, a lot of PMCers use regular store-bought stamps, but this is so much better since the design can be yours 100%!

Just wanted to say thanks again to everyone for all of the nice comments and thoughts!

I just bought a PMC kiln and I am so excited to try to make something using a stamp material. I never thought of that! Thanks for the great tips and I can't wait to see more of your work!

I like the idea of something being 100% my own. I have to admit that I'm sometimes disappointed at how much I see people using pre-made stamps or buttons in their PMC pieces.

I'm self-taught when it comes to PMC.  I've only taken basic silversmithing courses (which helped me with my refining technique and firing, but not much else related to PMC),  so I don't know many different ways to work with it.  Either I wait for different techniques to come into Art Jewelry Magazine or I find it online.... so I really appreciate your post.  Thanks again for sharing the tutorial!
