Custom Medical ID Medallion

Who is this project for? Unisex What are you most proud of? Taking a medical necessity and turning it into an opportunity for a small luxury instead. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start with a one sided medallion for sure! One new skill per project is probably enough, that way you can concentrate on your new areas while building on your skills. Advice re photopolymer stamps and plates: Do the test strips, and experiment to find your best exposure times. That being said, don't be afraid to try things you don't know how to do, and don't be afraid of failure. It took me a WHILE to get the hang of making the plates.(the exposure times posted were way too long for my particular set up) so my first project took 13 stamp efforts until I got it right. But once I mastered it, it was smooth sailing.
