Narrow backgrounder for fine work.
Approximate size: 6mm x 1mm (15/64" x 3/64")
A narrow background stamp for tight areas, use the stamp to press down the leather around your designs.
Backgrounders are also sometimes called matting stamps and are used to push down and add texture to the background area of a design.
Note: Sizes are approximate and are given as height by width.
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.
