There's a huge variety of rubber stamps (1) just waiting to be use on polymer or metal clay. Choose deeply etched designs. Rollagraph Stamp Wheels (2) are another great source for designs that can be applied continuously. Leather stamps (3) made from metal and embossing wheel tools (4) also work well on the clay. Clearsnap makes several different styles of molding mats (5) that are similar to unmounted rubber stamps. These small designs work nice for bail shapes (see page 32). And don't forget that you can use found objects such as bobby pins (6), textured leaves (7) or even paper clips (8) for some interesting impression tools.
