I went on a carving binge a couple night back, forgot to photograph one, d'oh!

The science one is made from one of those "for Really Big Mistakes" erasers. I heard someone else say they didn't like the way it carved but I didn't mind. My first carving, many years ago, was actual linoleum, so I had no trouble with the firmness of this rubber. It is a good deal stiffer than PZ Kut or any of the other Speedball blocks, but softer than Linoleum.

The science stuff is actually from a very old student chemistry stencil, I traced the shaped right on the eraser & went from there.

The spool of thread & scissors are PZKut. The thread I drew my own image and was mostly an exercise in "how small can I go?". The scissors is a Dover vintage image. I hand draw on the erasers or trace with pencil.

Love them all! The scissors are especially awesome.
You know, I haven't actually carved anything since the stamp swap! I'll have to get back on that... It's just so difficult to get hold of good carving materials over here!  Angry

Those are fantastic.  I love the science one (and the others too).  I think I need to learn how to carve stamps, as you just reminded me of my unfulfilled quest for an Erlenmeyer Flask stamp last Christmas.

Yaaaay. The Chemistry glassware stamp is great, even moreso because I don't think you'd be able to buy it anywhere.

Saw this in the featured article on the home page today.
That glassware stamp is awesome. I'm having a "why didn't I ever think of that" moment!
