Creative Memories ideas
It's no secret that I love hitting stamps with my brass mallet, but I have traded my hammer for a different tool lately and it has been so much fun. Engraving! Beaducation offers two different models of engravers: for those on a budget, the Micro Engraver works great and for those doing a lot of engraving who want more power, we recommend our Complete Engraver Tool Set.
Start by drawing your pattern on your jar with a sharpie pen. I like to do Zentangles so I did some of those patterns on the cup you see below. (! Simply "draw" over the pen marks with your engraver. Don't worry if some of the pen marks still show slightly; you can rub them off after you are done with a Pro Polish Pad or some super fine Steel Wool.
