June 8 entry


I carved a couple of eraser stamps after buying Gloria Page's Art Stamping Workshop. I'm enjoying using them. The flowers were stamped with a shaped eraser that I bought at Dollar General and carved the center out of it.

Dawn, what materials do you prefer for stamp carving? I've just bought that book (in Scotland).

Elizabeth, I normally use whatever erasers I can find. I did buy a block of carving material, but I haven't used it yet. These stamps were carved from some "giant" erasers that I bought. One of my students showed up at school with one and I quizzed her as to where she had bought it. It came from a close-out store. They are about 3" x 6" or 8 cm x 15 cm. At $1.29 they were a lot cheaper than the carving blocks. I use a lino cutter that the art teacher at school gave me. I really need to invest in a set of them.
