Default Stamping question

Noob to all of this so was wondering if it was easy to self stamp? Is that even possible? Are there any videos that would be a good place to learn from?

Most hobby stores sell heat transfer foil in the scrap booking section. A variable temp soldering iron works great on lower settings, otherwise wood burning kits are alright and they do sell heat pens for scrap booking. Once you have the foil and a proper tool, it's an easy process. It all just comes down to your free hand artistic skill.

I've only tried it once, and while it most definitely works, my free hand skills are not that phenomenal. I'd love to see what Marmoset could do!

However, the temperature settings, time spent applying the foil (and not damaging the disc) and pressure used are all risky variables. That's why most of us just stick to dye.
