Tip for making

    Hi Guys

    Thought I'd share with you a way for making repetitive patterns

    First you do the art work.this could be larger than actual either by computer or by hand in black ink on paper.

    take the art work to a printer and ask him to do a plate for printing either in polymer (cheaper) or zinc for hot foil

    tell him to do it in the scale you intend to use so he reduces your work and you get sharper detail

    he will first make a film


    this is the polymer plate that you will get.It cost me $15for a plate of 10cm x 8cm
    it had varous nameplates


    This a male impression . then you make a female impression in milliput or similar


    when cured trim very close

    then you can start making impressions either to use loosly or directly on the item
