Been carving some stamps lately with my BFF Dee! Starting to get slightly addicted...
Mika and Mika!
Here is a super basic, bare bones, tutorial on how to carve a stamp:
1. Draw your design on tracing paper
2. Transfer your drawing to a
rubber carving block by flipping it so the drawing side is against the
rubber. Burnish the back of the tracing paper with a spoon. The drawing will be stuck to the rubber really easily!
3. Carve around the drawing with a #1 speedball carving tip.
4. Use a larger speedball tip to clear area around edges.
