325 - Large Green Man Impression Die

This is the largest of our three Green Man designs and measures 22.5mm across. His expression is also slightly more serious than the other Green Men - perhaps because he's the boss! This is a large design and fairly deep (the tip of the nose is at a depth of 2.5mm). You need a hydraulic press to achieve a good impression.

Product description

  • Specification

    The large Green Man design measures approximately:

    Height: 22.5mm
    Width: 22.5
    Depth: 2.3mm

    This impression die is manufactured from mild steel and measures approximately 20mm thick and 40mm in diameter. Made in England, UK.

  • Instructions

    Can I use this tool with a hammer and a punch?

    No - This design is intended to be used in a hydraulic press.

    Can I use this tool with a hydraulic press?

    Yes, all Gemina impression dies and shot plates can be used in a press. Ensure your metal is annealed regularly before you begin. Intermediate annealing may be required to achieve a full impression.

    Can I use this tool with the YQK-70 hydraulic crimping tool?

    No - This design cannot be used in the crimping tool.

    How much silver do I use with this design?

    You can use approximately 5.4g of silver to achieve a solid impression.

    What shape of silver can I use?

    Round ingot:

    Melt your metal so it forms into a spherical shape. Pickle and press into the centre of the design. Don't press too much - you want to prevent your metal from cracking. Anneal and repeat until the metal spreads into the the rest of the design. With this method, the deepest details of the Green Man face will be formed first. 

    Flat sheet:

    Cut sheet to size so that it covers the design. Press until you have an outline of the design. Trim, anneal and repeat until you have a full depth impression. Remember to use sheet that is thicker than the impression depth of the die. Alternatively, you can use thinner sheet with urethane (or a soft metal pusher) to create a hollow impression.

    Removing your impression from the die

    Occasionally, some dies can 'hold on' to your metal. This is more common when using a press compared to hammering. Ensure the dies are clean before use. If you wish, you can apply a very small amount of oil into the die before forming as this can help removal. Excess metal will create a flange around the design that will aid in removal after hammering or pressing. Carefully use a thin bladed knife under the excess metal to lift the impression out of the die.
