How to Stamp Silver
silver plate spoons
silver stamping block
Step 1: Select spoon
You can easily find silver plate at thrift stores and estate sales.
Silver plate is very easy to work with and bends smoothly and is strong enough to hold up to normal wear and tear.
Step 2: Flatten head of spoon
Using a rubber mallet (so you won’t damage the silver) flatten the head of the spoon.
The spoon will still have a few ridges and bumps even though it is almost flat.
Those are my favorite.
They’re called character.
Step 3: Choose the size of stamps you want to use
Here are the three sizes of stamps I have.
1/4 (largest)…..all caps.
5/64 (2mm) (medium)…..all caps.
3/32 (smallest) …..lower case.
You can see tons of different options here.
Step 5: Stamp spoon
Place spoon on the stamping block.
Hold the silver stamp where you want the letter to go and hit hard with a hammer several times.
Sometimes you have to flip the stamped spoon over and flatten it again when the edges curl up slightly.
That’s how you stamp.
Here are some fun projects to use your new stamping skills with.
1. Spooning plaque
