- Metal milagros that are flat
- Letter set
- Permanent marker
- Steel block
Tape your milagro to the steel block and pick out your letters. Make sure they are lined up right. I colored on the tips with the markers and pressed it on the table, just to be sure!
Use the bottom tape as a guideline for your letters. It's ok if they aren't super straight, you'll get better over time, the more you practice. Line up your stamp and give it a could few poundings. (NOTE: Make sure there are no glasses of water on the edge of your table because they will fall off during the pounding process, trust me!)
Once you've stamped in your letters, you need to make them really pop! Take a black permanent marker and color generously in the grooves of the letters. Immediately wipe away the ink off the top of the milagro. Now the ink will have settled in the letters.
