New! Strippers Cut out shapes are a deeply etched group of shapes, circles, triangles and squares that outline a standard shape. The difference between these stamps and metal 'cookie' cutters is that as the shape (textured or patterned) is outlined it becomes beveled at the sides due to the pressure of the stamp in the clay. The middle of the shape retains the original surface treatment because the outline is empty. A progression of sizes delivers a wide variety in 'Strippers' shapes.
Use with polymerclay, metal clay or ceramic clay to make jewelry, mosaics, and appliqued shapes.
Each graduated set is on a strip measuring 2 inched x 8 inches. Sold in sets of each shape. The largest circle measures 1.75 diameter.The largest square measures 1.5 inches. The triangles are random sizes, the largest measuring 2.5 on the longest side.
