Metal scraper not recommended but stamper is great
on 8 September 2012
I have been nail stamping for a while and would not recommend using a metal scraper on your precious (and usually expensive) stamping plates.
You can get ones like this that are shaped the same but are all plastic - to avoid doing any damage. The ones I have are from Moyou but I think they're discontinued but any plastic ones would do. If the metal one is your only option, I would say just use a plastic credit-type card. It's all about technique so if you're finding it difficult with a credit card it's not because you need a metal scraper! You just have to practice speed and pressure a few times.
The double ended stamper is good - the small end particularly good for children or single patterns on adult nails. But note that you will need to run a nail file over both ends a few times before you use it or it might not pick up the pattern.
