Japanese Sumi Ink has been watered down and then carefully brushed onto tengu-jo tissue creating a skin deep drama.
We have recently added a very simple do-it-yourself stamp making kit to our collection of decorating tools at the store; The Speedy Carve Stamp Making Kit by Speedball.
It comes with a 4 x 6″ piece of rubber carving block, a carving tool with two blades, a piece of tracing paper, and a detailed instruction sheet.
With a pencil, trace an image onto the tracing provided, pressing firmly.
Flip your drawing over onto the rubber block and burnish it gently – I used my thumbnail – to transfer the pencil lines.
Carve away the negative space around the pencil marks, leaving only the lines of the image.
Ink the carved block evenly with your choice of coloured stamp pad.
Press the inked block onto your paper…ink…and repeat!
