Stamp Carving




We carved stamps for crafts yesterday. It was a really fun project, and it captured all the kids' interest, especially Dunagan. He started on a second one today. Speedball makes a beginner carving kit that includes the wooden handle, two carving blades and the soft, pink stamp material. Avoid the stuff labeled linoleum. It is too hard to cut. A soft white easer will do, too.


Dunagan's first stamp is the big dragon. Kirven's are the ladybug and the thing I am assuming is a ghostie. Ayla wanted a kitty, so that was my attempt at the top which she improved upon later.
