Project #31 Rubber Stamps
I've done a fair few laser cut stamps now but this one was a request with a twist that kept me very interested. Steph wanted to make some rubber stamps but she didn't want to be relying on me to make lots more stamps in the future. So we hatched a plan to make a cast for stamps and see if we could pour something into the mould to make new stamps. The results speak for themselves. I think the replicated stamps are every bit as good as the laser cut ones.
A bit of trial and error was needed and is still needed. The gentleman dinosaur was cut into 10mm acrylic. The lines could be slightly thicker and deeper for a better cast. The rabbits were cut into 4mm acrylic which was etched 2-3mm deep so the acrylic started to warp. The good news is that when both were filled with latex they provided good quality stamps. I'm sure there chemicals better for pouring too. (custom job, no files)
