Mist a clean rubber stamp lightly with water Press the stamp into the clay pressing harder if you want a bolder impression lighter if you want a more subtle one Remove the stamp to reveal the impression

If you're an experienced rubber stamper (one who's used to working with ink and paper, that is), you may be surprised to know that it's perfectly fine to rock the stamp a bit if you need to ensure a firm impression. (This is a no-no with ink because you may touch the stamp edge onto your surface, ruining the image in the process.) Don't lift the stamp, though, and then try to place it back in the same spot, or you're sure to create an unintentional shadow that looks sloppy.
