I made a stamp

I made a stamp from cutup foam

glued to cardboard remains of a notepad.

Using acrylic craft paint I experimented with layers of stamping

on thin gauzy muslin.

Letting that dry overnight I water-thinned Setacolor transparent paint in two colors of green and washed across the fabric.

Dropping clear water and adding wrinkles to allow some variation in the color as it dries.

Leftover paint, what to do?

Crayon rubbings of the stamp on paper, indented paper

color washes.

Things are drying!!


  1. i love the effects of the layered stamping. i have been trying to find some time for some lino cutting but...hey... you know.

  2. Hee hee, Yes Jude, I know about that "finding some time for" feeling.
