Rubber Stamps & Silver clay

Okay - the discussion we were having not long ago.
this month's Bead & Button has an article about using rubber stamps
and silver clay. The author uses "olive oil or hand balm" and oil the
tools and your hands.
for what it's worth to those who wanted to know.

When I went to Rejuvenation to meet Kalera the other day, I saw a bunch of neat old doorknobs with raised designs worked in the metal. I thought "Sarajane's mold goop would probably work stupendously on these. And what great poly or precious metal clay designs they would make!" You ever use something like that as a mold model?

You've caught the moldmakers' POV, Deirdre! And yes, I have taken impressions of stuff like that--MM is not as good for quick and secret "there's a piece, get it!" casting because it has a three minute window of opportunity when mixed...but Elasticlay can travel in a purse and be ready to take a quick impression any time!! Nowadays, I usually get the original piece where I can take my time and make a good mold out of the Miracle Mold stuff, which means no more secret agent stuff...just as well, given security things these days!!

I can just see you glancing furtively in all directions before whipping it out to do a lightning-fast impression on the fly...

no no no---NEVER glance furtively when behaving clandestinely, its THE biggest tip off. Case the area boldly by eye, pretend you are looking with illhumor for your dog or child, (nobody bothers PO'd women) then either do the deed or wait till any bystanders leave. Altoid boxes are great--one for the raw elasticlay and a little powder ponce bag, one for putting the impressions into untill you can bake them... Sarajane

Sort of the modern equivalent of 'doing rubbings'...
