I will keep an eye on this thread, if i see the list of participants start to fill up i will quickly join on in =]
Im a beginner to stamp carving but not to art, so my skill should improve greatly between now and the time to carve for my partners!

I would say expect me to 100% join this swap, my name wont be seen on the list until the last minute though ;] I want to see how much work my other swap entails for crafting first and then i need to wait also until i get my gouges in the next week or so.

I guess that they would be extras.  Talk with your partner, and see.  Sometimes we carvers have a lot of stuff on hand, but sometimes we don't!

Indeed, as long as your partner is ok with swapping extras  Wink

That would be great =]
Would love it if one of my partners had the "Eraser for really big mistakes" ;] at their local dollar store, i checked and mine doesnt =[ sucks.
I guess if u do use the really big eraser its best to use the hot pink one and not the regular color pink giant eraser, i guess its gritty and difficult to work with and it crumbles to hell!

I never used erasers before, but I'm certainly going to check a "dollar store" (would be rather a euro store here  Wink) to see what kind of erasers they have!

Astrangeone uses erasers and her stamps come out great =] I have gone online to do my research and apparently a lot of people use erasers, usually its mostly beginners that do so they can practice before buying the carving rubber, but people who have been doing it a long time also use erasers, Their great for smaller stamps, like names or fonts or just small pictures.
Astrangeone did my my business name logo for my jewelry stuff so i could stamp the tags with it that their on, she also did my email address that i can stamp on the back of them =] All from erasers!
Can I post a photo in here of stamps she did for me?

Sure, I'd love to see it!
I just bought 2 cheap erasers to try. They're not so big, but for 1 stamp it's ok.

What you guys need are Vinyl erasers, rather than the rubber ones. Pink rubber erasers are a butt to carve and don't give good prints, in my experience. Vinyl erasers tend to come in different kinds of colors and/or designs, while the rubber ones are just pink. My dollar store usually has a good selection, although they don't carry the big white ones anymore Sad

The hot pink one is one of those giant pink erasers =]

Lovely! How cool to have your shop name or username on a stamp...hm, will have to add that to my questionnaire  Wink  Are the white ones also made from erasers?

IdlersDesign, the "white" ones are from Speedy-Carve.  It was one of my 1st times using the stuff.

I actually will try to find a cheap supplier of Speedy-Carve - but apparently, you can also carve plumbing gaskets.  (But they need to be mounted to stamp correctly!)

I handcarve stamps, knit and have organic catnip.
