I hope this is the right place for these.
 I love to carve my own stamps! If you've never tried it you should it's fun and fairly easy.
This is one I carved last night.

If anyone wants I'm more than willing to write a quick little tutorial?

Clayfaery,

I would certainly LOVE to know how you made these! They are awesome! The two bottom ones in your collection look so intricate and amazing! You should totally post a tute!!!

Tute? Yes!  I remember doing this way back in junior high many years ago.  I forget how we did it.  I remember something about white erasers.

here's a quick tutorial

what you need:
image you want to carve

Linoleum cutters  http://www.dickblick.com/zz402/03/  You can find them in Micheals in the fine are section somewere near the calligraphy stuff

Artist Carving Block {rubber}  I prefer to use Steadtler as it doesn't crumble and the blades cut it like butter! Again you can find it here http://www.dickblick.com/zz404/00/


Step one- transfer or draw the image you want to carve onto the rubber. To transfer an image I use carbon paper and then go over it with an ink pen

step 2- depending on the detail of the image, I usually cut out the background first . So with this stamp I used my largest blade and cut around the image

when carving go lightly that way you have more control over how much the blade cuts.

Step 3- to do the detail work I switch to a smaller blade


step 4- carve out the inside ,leaving the line you marked, I usually leave a little extra ,giving the finished image a bit thicker lines  Tada!


ink the stamp like any other stamp and see how it looks . If you see places you missed just carve the out and go!

Do you know of anywhere I can get lino besides online? I'd like to try it but it's difficult for me to order online.

Thanks for the tute clayfaery.  i really appreciate it as I am sick of not finding the stamp designs I want.

I will be try that art gum eraser idea McJulie-O.  I think that would work and they would be a great size.  I do wonder how they would stand up to regular use though.  Oh well, we'll see.

my sister made a bunch of stamps out of old hockey pucks she found in the thrift store, so that's an option if you can't find the artist carving block.i think it was harder to carve, but they worked out great.

and years ago i did lino carving with pieces of old linoleum. it's a bit different technique, but might be easier to find the stuff for in a small town.   

your stamps are amazing! i want to start makin them again, you've totally inspired me!

have you done any with writing? i'm so bad about remembering to reverse them, i'm scared to try again!

I love them!! Its so great to find someone else who does this. I also carve my own stamps. I've only carved 4 so far. I'll try to dig up the pics and post some pics too.

Your hamster is so cute. The hamster and devil guy are my fav.

I want to go buy more blocks to carve tomorrow.

If you want to make small stamps, gel erasrers work really well too, and they're really cheap.

I made these in my art class a few years back. Later one I learned that for a cheaper way of doing this, you can just use a potato. Cut it in half and carve out your shape. Dry it a bit, and then dab on some paint and away you go. Smiley
