This Saturday I will be opening up the stamp carving door in the Do What You Love on-line classroom and thought I'd share a little here too.
I have found that as I teach this technique in class, you will either love it or you wont like it all all. You will never know until you try, but it is not just about carving but also about what you can do with with your rubber stamps that makes the class.
In a nutshell, you can transfer or draw out your image on the pink rubber that you carve on: Use a tool to start carving out your image: and keep carving then ink it so see what you need to clean up: then stamp it.
In the Do What You Love online class there are many tips, a video and patterns for you so it is a little more than what I just shared above BUT it is not hard, in fact, it is easier than you think.
Like I mentioned above, it is not just about carving stamps, but also what you can create with the images you stamp. It is another form or creating art from art. To read more about the Do What You Love on-line class, click here. Hope to see you in class!
