New Toys!!!

Sorry, just had to show off, I am so pleased with my new toys. :-)

I got a set of dapping punches, a dapping/forming block and some lovely, teeny letter punches.

Here are my dapping punches, complete with a little wooden block for them to live in. :-) Lots of different sizes.

There is a view 4, but I accidently took two pictures of view 3. Never mind. You get the idea....

Here's what you do with the dapping punches and the dapping block:

A little dome shape, just perfect for little flowers and cup shapes.

Here is the little dome shape from the side.

There are lots of other shapes as you can see, and it will come in handy whilst I am exploring all the things you can do with metal.... :-D

These are the little letter punches. Each letter is only about 2.5 - 3mm, so quite teeny, but the work perfectly.

All you need is one of those, and a hammer...

To make one of those:

Had to try everything out of course! :-)

Great fun.


  1. Wow, they look like fun! Aren't you tempted to go and stamp your name on anything metal in the house....Can't wait to see what you do with these.

  2. :-D Not everything metal in the house... I may leave some for Ben to stamp. LOL

    I have a few ideas of things I wanted to make for a while but didn't have the right tools to make... Watch this space. :-)

  3. ooh! that looks like fun to play with!
    Will have to keep an eye out for new and interesting pieces...

  4. Oh these look fantastic!!!

    Toby has a long list of equipment he wants to buy, perhaps I should ban him from your blog, as I can see more being added now - hehe.

    I really like the letter punches, you'll be able to create lots of new things with those.

    Cant wait to visit here again to see what you've made.

    Happy punching!
