Default Stamp Carving

Do we have anyone on this forum that is experienced in carving rubber stamps?

Whoops... I started another thread too. Sorry.

Yes, I started with the basic Speedball set that I picked up at Michaels. But then I graduated to the big erasers found in the school supplies.

Most of my art is for ATCs so my cuts were often small versions of a drawing or a graphic rendition of one of my photos.

Do you cut?

I've carved a couple of stamps. I'll look around here and see if I posted mine.

Aha! I did find my first two attempts. Refer to post #1 and post #24.

I did another one, but didn't take pics of it.

I used a Speedball and SafetyKut. SafetyKut is far easier to carve on than a lino block. It's like cutting butter. I believe J3annin3 told me about it.

I'm pretty sure that gg designs started with carved stamps. If you google gg designs they should come up. Also, fab, a member here may have some other sources as well.

Default stamp carving

I have carved my own stamps off and on for years whenever I need an image I don't have in my collection. I like to carve bold images like the company Hot Potatoes. stamping sue

Steve from Meer Image enjoys carving stamps and if you go to his site and check out his blogs he shows great photos about the process and might be agreeable to answering a question or two if you ask real nice...He is an awsome artist I might add.
