Hand Carved Stamps Tiny Stamps Post No.1
It might be a bit obvious to those who have been visiting here for awhile that I do like to utilize all of the rubber from any sheet I ever carve from. Maybe it's the culinary training and years in food service that I have the 'waste not, want not' consciousness. Being convinced to throw away or let go down the drain as little product as possible. It's called getting a high yield from your goods. So I guess that carries over into my art making world as well.
After transferring my image from tracing paper onto the rubber in the best fitting space, I cut it away from the larger piece.
There are always scraps from this process and hold on to all the bits and pieces from the rubber I cut away.
Then I transform them into tiny stamps.
This is simply a sampling.
Some get mounted on wood, some get mounted on thick foam, some get mounted on cork and some stay unmounted.
I think they are so much better looking on paper than as a stamp, but that's just me.
Look at this little unmounted guy, even though it's little it still can make a great impression. Forgive the pun.
So now since this post is titled Tiny Stamps Post No.1 , I guess that means I have to publish a Post No.2.
Thanks for stopping by and check back for more of my Tiny Stamps
