Thanks!  The Totoro one, I was basically holding my breath to do...very detailed and hard to deal with - I think I'd buy a staedler #1 carving tool for finer lines...

Thanks.  I might mount the Hello Kitty one - the size makes it hard to get a clear impression of the stuff...Cheesy

Stamps!

So, in a fit of boredom, I've taken up carving stamps.  The two chinese ones read: "tae ma die" ("**** your mother), and a rather drab "love" one.  The one under the chinese swear word is "operation beautiful.com" - my reason for getting into carving.  It's addictive; even if I have to clean up a shed load of eraser shavings!

Love it.  I've been carving mostly on those big "for big mistakes" erasers.  But, they aren't satisfying to do - although they take acetone transfers a bit better than anything else I've tried.
835  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Full Metal Alchemist swap? on: February 02, 2010 11:35:45 AM
I love Full Metal Alchemist, and even Edward's annoying exaggerations of being short!  So, just wondering if I could suggest a FMA themed swap.
836  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Help with organized craft shows... on: February 01, 2010 03:17:30 PM
So, I'm heading to Anime North...and I'm going as a crafter's corner person (I can't afford to not do this without it...)  Most of my stuff is going to be stamping stuff (Flamel's logo, MK logo, whatever).

So, I'm carving away like mad to start my stock.  Just now, I made three Flamel's logo from FMA.

Just wondering:

- how do you guys/gals package your stuff for craft shows?  (I'm thinking polybag with an insert)
- how do you guys set a price point on your work?
- what usually sells the fastest?
- how do you attract customers?

Can't help you on the medium thing...but how about "Snorlax:  Sleeping and eating is always in style?"

Love snorlax.  Think I'd go carve a stamp with that image on it now.
838  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / I blame the acetone... on: January 13, 2010 06:51:21 PM
So, being a novice stamp carver - I had confidence that I can work on tiny areas with not much trouble.  (I had a bit of practice.)  Until I decided to get fancy and carve a small portrait of a certain electric mouse.

Things that went wrong:

1)  Spilled almost 1/4 of the jar of acetone on the eraser.
2)  Using a very soft "for big mistakes" eraser
3)  Didn't change the pikachu to black and white
4)  Carved it in low light settings.

The stamp looks like a soul-sucking pikachu.  *creepy*  Pikachu!  Use soul-suck!

Thanks!  I'd keep an eye out for those!

-  When you always have ink on your hands
-  when your desk/work surface is covered in test stamps!

-  you start to like the smell of vinyl being carved
-  you find stamp shreds everywhere!
-  you rescue used, "unloved" erasers, and turn them into mini art pieces
-  you have way too many erasers in your stash
-  you like your cuticle remover!
-  you don't know how to use photoshop, except to make stampable images

Edit:  Quick question:  Anyone have a good inkpad brand to recommend?  I've been using office type inkpads, and the not so intense color is driving me up the wall!
