My Creative Space

This week I've been doing a bit of stamp carving. I feel like I'm slowly improving - the key word here is slow, which is how you have to do it - v e r y    s  l  o   w   l   y. I'm not quite happy with the carving block I'm using so I ordered some Staedtler Mastercarve (from Dick Blick in the USA because you can't get it here. Grrr.)

So here's a little Ninja guy, and a skull based on images in the Mexican codices.

They're both awesome... I like the skull :D

Kate said...

these are so good, I find stamp carving extremely difficult and I usually cut myself!

Sam said...

Thank, Kira and Kate! There has been a little bloodshed here too.

They're both great, Sam, and I think the skull is extra wonderful!

The "white stuff" is smelly & hard to use - too crumbly for me. I prefer the softer pink one. You are doing a great job from what we're seeing. :)

Thanks, RR and Sandra! I'm really starting to enjoy stamp carving a lot :-)
