To stamp or roll a decorative edge onto your miniature plate you can use tiny rubber stamps, or stamps made from buttons or beads. Dust them with talcum powder or your chosen release agent for your clay before using them. I used a vine stamp from Rubber Stamp Tapestry to make my pattern, but I have also used fine jewellery chain and beads with a toothpick to make a decorative roller to press a design on the plate.

To prevent the design from running over into the center of your plate, you can use a mask made from the remaining card circle cut from the center of your plate rim mold earlier.
