I wish I knew what happened to my Speedball (I think that was the name?) carving tool. I know I got it at Michaels tho, so I imagine I can get another. Cheesy


I'm excited about this swap, but I hope my partners are understanding that I am sooo very beginner. I tried stamps years ago, had a bit of trouble with it, but really wanna try again, so. Swaps are good for that! Smiley

I've googles away like crazy in the last two days.. my main problem is very fine cutting.. i got a whole range of needles as suggested but find that no matter how I hold them they dig in and take out large chunks.. Im trying to do small lettering.. anyone have any hints and tips on that ?
I just noticed the sign up dates are quite long.. might have to join up towards the end if i can get this down pat!!  Grin

I've not tried small lettering with needles (I should try, because most of my stuff involves fonts), but if you have the patience, go invest in some cheap reading glasses - these will help you by magnifying the carving material!  Oh, and go lightly around your letters - you can control how much you take off with how deep you go!

My business cards are hand stamped - and the lettering was in 8 point font.  Took me half the day to do it!

I handcarve stamps, knit and have organic catnip.

I saw some of you guys talking about the big erasers for big mistakes. At the dollar store here, you can only find them when it's back to school time. You can order stuff from dollar tree online, maybe they have them there. If you had enough people interested you could go in on them together...just a thought  Grin

My Dollarama has them all the time - but they are big fat blocks.  The smaller "Everything for a Dollar" in my university town stocks a thinner kind.  I kind of prefer the big erasers, because they are less rubbery and they don't stick to things.  I dunno, I've been buying crappy erasers just to carve them lately!  Cheesy

Looks like Michaels and Hobby Lobby both carry the speedball cutters and the carving blocks. This is good news for me! I think this week I'll go pick some stuff up and begin practicing. Cheesy



I also just went through the galleries from the previous swaps and wisted a whole bunch of things. XD

I tried some erasers for the first time yesterday and they are just perfect. They carve easily and give a good clear print. (so much better than the carving block I had)
So I made my username and a simple Mario item:

Just went to the dollar store to buy more erasers (25 cents!) so I can practice more this weekend, yay!  Cheesy
