1. I found that the stamp with the handle (the farthest on the right) worked well because it allowed you to place the design in only the specific areas you wanted. Out of all them it gave the most control. The stamps that had a very distinct design worked the best as they created detail and distinction into the clay. The roller stamp (middle design) that I used did not work well because the design was not very distinct which caused it to be very faint in the clay. The square stamp I used (farthest to the right) also worked well because it gave control and accuracy.
2.I think this practice will influence what I make for my own stamps because it made me realize that for the design to show up with detail onto the clay it will need to be heavily engraved in. It also helped me narrow down the shapes and styles of stamps that suit my liking and give me the best accuracy for stamping sections of clay.
