Carving stamps are made from a high quality ferrous steel which gives a consistent sharp and clear impression time after time. These can be identified from cheaper metal alternatives by checking to see if they are magnetic. Each tool has an integral steel handle measuring approximately 10.5cm, 4 ¼” and has a textured non-slip area for easier gripping.
This image shows the smooth beveller in use to highlight texture and shadow on a Celtic pattern, to allow give the impression of where the lines go underneath each other.
