Thats so spectac.  it looks very similar to my tattoo..  Did you do that yourself or from a picture..  cuz even though i know nothing about carving, it would be fun to do a stencil from the actual stamp.

I carved it on the rubber block that came with my Speedball carving kit.

That is beautiful.  I have been wanting to make some of those stamps for a while.  We made them in high school and I always cut myself. Cry  How many times did you cut yourself?
And yours has so much more detail than mine ever did.

Why thank you!  The picture of the fish I found somewhere on the internet.  The picture of course has a lot more detail, looks like it is made out of a million tiny dots.

This is so unbelievable, but I actually didn't cut myself at all (which doesn't even make sense). I read up on carving on the internet before I bought the speedball kit, and one website tutorial made this huge deal about making sure not to "undercut" the image (as in cutting toward the stencil shape), so I made sure to always carve out and away from the design.  I believe this contributed greatly to uninjured success Smiley

Your stamp came out really great! So I imagine you draw the image on the rubber block free-hand? Or maybe it was transfered somehow??

I love it!! Great work!
