  • Choose a disc and peel off the nylon protecting the surface, there are multiple designs on each disc.
  • Place the disk on the plate holder.
  • Turn the disc around to face the design inwards, and then paint some heavy polish at the back of the design of your choice.
  • Lay the end of the stamper at the side of the design on the disk, applying firmness, roll the stamper across and over the design, this would pick up the design on the disc.
