Unlock the magic of metal crafting with Twisted Turtle Studio's innovative 32 Diamonds Rolling Mill Plate. In this step-by-step guide, we'll walk you through the process of creating 32 exquisite diamonds, each boasting a unique pattern. From annealing your metal to perfecting the finishing touches, discover how to bring your metalwork to life with precision and creativity.

Step 1: Anneal Your Metal
Begin by annealing your metal to make it more malleable and easier to work with. Heat the metal evenly until it glows red and then allow it to cool slowly.

Step 2: Clean Your Metal
Ensure your metal is free from any dirt or debris by cleaning it thoroughly. Sparex solution works well for this purpose.

Step 3: Texture Your Metal
Place your metal between the 32 Diamonds Rolling Mill Plate and a craft foam sheet to get a better and deeper imprint when you roll the metal. Use a file folder to protect the rolls on your rolling mill. Run the assembly through your rolling mill to imprint the intricate diamond patterns onto your metal.

Step 4: Examine Your Imprint
After texturing, admire the beautiful imprint of 32 diamonds in various captivating patterns on your metal.

Step 5: Mark Your Metal
Utilize the guidelines on the outer edges of the imprint to mark your metal for cutting.

Step 6: Cut Along Your Marked Lines
Carefully cut along the marked lines to create the outline of your diamonds.

Step 7: Create Your Diamonds
Continue cutting along the additional lines within the imprint to separate each diamond shape.

Step 8: Refine the Edges
Smooth out any sharp edges on your diamonds by filing the corners, ensuring a polished and safe finished product.
