ADDICTED


this is a collection of the stamps I have been carving, some for a purpose, some just for the hell of it, all of them are my own designs (except the ones Ebi-kun did) so please do not copy them. I will have some stamps for sale in the shop soon and I am happy to do custom orders, if there is something you want, drop me a line and we will see what we can sort out :o)

  3. I love the buttons and the bird in a tree stamps. I think I need to give stamp making a try!

  4. Fantastic!!!! You are so talented! I really want to try to make stamps, but so far I haven't been able to find any rubber or erasers to use :(

  5. You're very good. Have you ever taken a printmaking class? I bet you'd enjoy it. Making linocuts (modern woodcuts) is pretty much the same process.

  6. Thank you!
    Evenspor, I did a year at art school when I was 17 and we did some printmaking there, lino print making and silk screen. Lino scared me a bit since I am rather on the clumsy side and nearly took a chunk out of my hand on several times. Silk creen, i loved the process of the design side by wasn't a fan of the actual printing side. We also did something involving metal sheets and acid - maybe, my memory is a bit vague about that bit, maybe it was the chemical fumes LOL.

    Melissa, some of these stamps were made with regular plastic erasers, such as the button one. The sheets of rubber are easier to work with though, I am experimenting with several types to see which one I like best.
