I have two stamps and the different grills and colors have me totally lost. And to put graphite on the stamp? Man I'm good at destroying things, so I'm nervous of doing that. Need help

Please don't, there are better methods to see grills better that don't smear graphite over the back of a stamp. Try using search for the subject., Lots of posts on seeing grills.

In addition, properly using graphite requires skill and a very light touch.
