Stamp, Stamp, Stamp! Three ways to make stamps with Amazing Mold Rubber by Lynne Suprock


Hello – it is Lynne Suprock again! I am loving being a part of the Amazing Casting Products Creative Team... and getting to play with all these wonderful products, then show you what I design. 

Today I want to share with you how to make your own rubber stamps so that you may use them in your collage work, jewelry work, tag designs, or anything else you can think of. We will make these stamps three different ways… so let’s get started.

When working with Amazing Mold Rubber, I usually like to have a few projects to work on together at one time, or work on one big project. That is just my preference, but you can measure out the mold rubber base and catalyst as needed and complete at intervals if you’d like. 


For this tutorial, I personally set up all three projects before mixing and pouring my Amazing Mold Rubber. However, the tutorials, as written, will also guide you through each project individually.

**PLEASE NOTE** Amazing Mold Rubber will cure in approximately 4-24 hours depending one your climate and humidity. The more humid the environment, the faster the mold rubber will cure. I used the Alumilite Rubber to Rubber Mold Release, but you can use a thin coating of vaseline or spray oil – just be sure to spread thinly and don't leave beads/clumps of oil (that can displace the liquid silicone and leave a mark in the mold surface). The surface just needs to be lubricated so that the surface is non stick.

STAMP ONE

Things you will need:
Using the steel die letters, hammer them into the wood. Write a name, a phrase or a story.

   

Build a wall around the stamped letters with popsicle sticks and attach with Elmer's glue. Make sure you dab the glue into each corner and in the cracks where the popsicle sticks meet the wood. Let dry.


Paint letter depressions and wood surface with Mold Release.

  

Measure and mix the two parts of Amazing Mold Rubber per instructions. CLICK HERE to see a video tutorial on mixing and preparation. When you are ready, pour the Amazing Mold Rubber into the mold and let cure.


Peel away the rubber and using the ink of your choice, stamp!

    


STAMP TWO

Things you will need:
Paint the inside of either top or bottom of the embossing plate with mold release. Surround all four sides of the plate with duct tape and press to secure, leaving a wall about 1/2” high.

   

Measure and mix the two parts of Amazing Mold Rubber per instructions. CLICK HERE to see a video tutorial on mixing and preparation. When you are ready, pour the Amazing Mold Rubber, let cure and unmold.

   

Use your favorite ink and stamp! 


STAMP THREE

Materials you will need:

Begin by painting the candy mold with mold release.


Measure and mix the two parts of Amazing Mold Rubber per instructions. CLICK HERE to see a video tutorial on mixing and preparation. When you are ready, pour the Amazing Mold Rubber into the mold and let cure.


Unmold and stamp using your favorite ink!

   

I have had so much creative fun doing these stamp making projects, and I hope that you will give Amazing Mold Rubber a try... or experiment a little too!
