Can anyone tell me how Vintaj brass pieces were designed? I know
these are stamped designs, but I would like to know how the models
for the stamp were made. Vintaj brass designs can be as tiny as 25mm
square with scrolls and realistic faces 3mm wide. Did someone use
green wax and a dissecting microscope? Did someone “cheat” and draw
a design with Photoshop or Illustrator, reduce the design size, and
send this to a stamp-making company? Were these done by CAD or CAM?
If anyone knows, please write back.
