How to Attach Metal Stampings
  • Welding - put all of the heat on the metal you're attaching the stamping to and then run a quick bead to the stamping.
  • Soldering
  • Nuts & bolts
  • Pop riveting
  • 2 ton epoxy glue
  • Powerful magnets - our M11 round 3/8" dia. x 1/8" thickness rare earth magnets work great as it allows you to change the stampings on your project depending on the time of year it is. If attaching to wood, drill a hole, countersink a flat head screw, and then glue a M11 rare earth magnet to the screw. The magnet stays but the metal stamping can be changed as desired.
  • 2 sided sticky foam tape

       

Finishing
Degrease stampings - as part of the manufacturing process, stampings are coated with a lubricant. This lubricant must be removed before any finishing or paint is applied to the decorative item. Wipe items down using a clean cloth and turpentine, denatured alcohol, strong detergent solution, or a lacquer thinner. After degreasing the item we strongly recommend that you apply a rust and corrosion-inhibiting coating to the item (unless rusting the stampings).

Once cleaned, finish by:

  • Paint (RustOleum or other quality spray paint - follow your paint supplier's directions for preparing, priming and top-coating the material chosen).
  • Stain
  • Torch Stampings - this changes the properties of the metal and brings out the blue, black, and purple colors of the metal. Once cooled, the stampings need to be top coated with a clear enamel to protect from rusting.
  • Baked Enamel
  • Patina
  • Powder-Coating
  • Antique
  • Gold/Silver Plating
  • Electroplating
  • Flocking
  • Air Brush
  • Glitter
  • Rust - soak items undisturbed in a glass container with equal parts bleach and white vinegar for 24 hours. (Caution! Do not breath the fumes and keep away from children & pets). Let items air dry until the desired level of rust is achieved.
  • Natural Color - use clear enamel spray paint or clear powder coating.
  • …and more!


For intricate painting, artist Sara Thamert, recommends the following: Yes, your customers must use a primer and I found a Walmart product that works the best: The brand name is ColorPlace an interior/exterior Fast dry spray paint. Gray primer/ can code number-20010. The paint I use is either: Apple Barrel-Acrylic paint or Delta-Acrylic paint. Both products are great and sized containers are just right. 2 fl. oz. /8 fl. oz. Purchased at Michaels - Hobbies and Arts store. After the stamping drys for a few days I spray a clear finish coat to seal the paint. Another Walmart product by Krylon. Acrylic Crystal Clear Gloss indoor/outdoor Protective, Non-Yellowing Clear Finish. That's it! Oh, make sure your customer is cleaning the stamping prior to primer application.
