    What is the item that was referred to as a disc/stamping? I see several people have posted this question on the site but no answer has been given yet.

    I think they mean a disc/stamping in terms of a stencil or shape you want the piece to be.

    The author of the article DID answer that question, and she said she bought her discs from http://www.metalliferous.com

    Hey guys, thanks for the compliments! A disc/stamping is basically just a piece of metal that has been pre-cut into a shape. (round in this case) They can be silver, brass, copper, etc. You can also make your own shapes and cut them from a sheet of metal.
    The disc I used is made of aluminum. One side is a little rough, but when I tried to file it down with some sandpaper, it got really scratched up. So when I made a second one, I put two discs back to back so that there are no more rough edges!
