Alphabet tool-on-pencil
by Elaine Luther

Finding the perfect tool for writing words in metal clay is not easy. Rubber stamps are too large, and metal clay sticks to rubber. I love using typewriter strikers, but they are getting harder and harder to come by, and not everyone loves them as much as I do.

To solve all these problems, I have come up with the Photopolymer Alphabet Tool! It’s a do it yourself project, but that keeps your cost low. The clear part of photopolymer plates cut very easily with scissors. Just cut out each letter and glue them with regular school glue to the backs of pencil erasers! (See photo for a sample.)

The letters are “outies” on the photopolymer plates, which will give you an impression in your metal clay. This makes it easy to use liver of sulphur to darken your letters, making them easy to read.
