Skull stamping and printing

Skull stamping and printing, originally uploaded by jckirner.

Endlessly fascinating - and a lightening fast hour spent with one of the skull stamps this morning.

First up plain stamping on 2 grades of muslin. Colorful acrylic paint brushed onto the stamp or spread on printing plate then stamped. (Ahhhh - can't get blogger to stop rotating my pics!!)

And pulled print off the printing plate too!

Then stamping and printing light onto dark cotton fabrics. Again pulling prints from the printing plate.

So much more to explore!

It's interesting to see the different textures picked up by varying how the paint is applied to the stamp, which ground texture is used, and the varying pressures applied to the stamp.


  1. Amazing stamps and the results are really full of potential.


Thanks for stopping by!! Love to read your comments - whether on vintage thrifting or creative stitching!! (Comments are moderated due to high spam lately - sorry!)
