I've had a request for further info on how to go about making your own stamps for terrain.
Making a stamp is REALLY EASY and here's a quick how-to to show you
why. You only need three things, A paintbrush top, a pair of needle nose
pliers and a file.
Step 1: Take an old tatty brush of a suitable size (or use a
really cheap new one) and remove the bristle holder from the handle by
gently twisting and wriggling it until it comes off.
Step 2: Squish the top flat with the pliers BUT make sure you leave enough room to insert the very ends of the pliers into the brush top!
Step 3: Now crimp the two shortest edges of the brush top, you
will start to see the stamp taking shape. Remember don't push the
pliers in too far. I use the first 5mm or so of the pliers.
Step 4: Now all that's left is to fiddle with it and get the
shape right. Don't use too much pressure or you'll tear the stamp.
Finally I'll file the inside and outside of the stamp with a fine metal
file and camber the edges so that they are very thin. This allows the
stamp to cut in a very defined way.
The different types of stamps you can create is only limited by your ingenuity.
Sorry for the fuzziness of some of the photos but it's really hard one handed!
