      I am planning on practicing carving Chinese words on seals. Does anyone else do this? Am I right in thinking I have to mirror the Chinese word so it comes out the right way round when stamped on paper?

      You are right on mirroring the characters when you put them on your stone, so when you stamp your seal it will look right. You can use a pencil or a felt pen to draw the characters on it (traditionally they use ink and brush).

      I’ve made a video once on how to carve a seal if it may be of help for you :
