Stamp Carving

Hand carved rubber stamps are an art and another skill you can add to your “toolbox” when creating hand lettered envelopes, greeting cards, or pieces of artwork. The hand carved image enhanc­es hand lettering in a way that a manu­factured, mass produced rubber stamp cannot. The hand carved stamp is person­al, while carrying the warmth and beauty of the hand that created it. The stamps may be a stand-alone gift to a friend (who wouldn’t enjoy a stamp created especially for them!), used in artwork, adorn a terra cotta pot or hand-stamped cloth napkin! Your imagination will be piqued with all the different ways to use an image. The techniques that I use enable even a be­ginner to carve very detailed images. No experience is needed, just enthusiasm!

Supplies to bring: X-Acto knife with a new #11 blade S417, S130, Scrap paper, Tracing paperP43, Pencil S142, Stamp pad (at least one, any dark color), Speedball Linoleum Cutter with a #1 blade S325-1 (You do not need the special Speedball handle that goes with the blade, simply put the #1 blade in a pen handle)

Recommended book (no books are required for any class at LetterFest)
B3231. The Book of Signs by Rudolf Koch.
Carol is a frequent contributor to Bound & Lettered, including these issues: 12.4, 12.3,12.2, 12.1, 11.3, 11.1, 10.4, and 8.3.

S417. Excel Deluxe Knife (NonSlip)
Excel Deluxe Knife

It's time to upgrade. This American-made knife has a soft handle, a no-roll feature, much sharper blades, and best of all its PURPLE (or Black, Blue, Red). It's no more expensive than X-Acto's basic knife! Safety Cap, #11 Blade.
