How to make your own stamps

This is how I make my own stamps:

- find a picture on the internet or draw something yourself. Don't forget to flip your picture 180 degrees horizontally before you print it!!

- I'm using a cheap large eraser for this stamp and start with some doodles on a piece of paper.


- on the back of the paper/your drawing/print: use a lot of charcoal;-))



- place the paper on the eraser and trace your drawing (transfer it)


(I didn't do a very neat job this time, but it's a simple drawing so I simply traced it with a pen...with a little help from my assistent Bob;-))
- cutting (I'm using a very cheap lino-cutting tool)

- inking and fine-tuning....


I hope you enjoyed my very first tutorial;-))

Have fun!!!

  1. Leuk!! Ben er ook verslaafd aan! Vond stempelen ala kind al leuk, maar met je eigen stempels is het vele malen leuker!! Ik ga nu een stempel-boeksel beginnen. Een goed excuus om nog meer stempels te maken... ;-)
