feather stamps

feather stampsI carved these intending to use them on fabric, but between the texture of the fabric and the thirty year old silkscreen ink I was using, I couldn’t get a print that I liked. All of my immediate family members were born during the summer months, so in need of some birthday cards, I put them to the test on some paper.

    I love your stamps and have a burning question: How did you make them?? I’ve been dying to carve my own stamps for months. I have a design in mind already but have no idea what supplies I need. I’ve asked a few art stores, but they were clueless. Please let me know if you have any advice!

    There are a few different options when it comes to making your own stamps, but for the feathers, I used linoleum blocks. They’re wooden blocks with a soft layer of linoleum you can carve into. If you’re planning on using a regular stamp pad, all you’ll need are the blocks, a bench hook, and a carving tool, and you can find those here:

    I hope this helps!

    These are so wonderful! Would you ever consider selling them on Etsy or the like?

  5. Jessica says:

    Yes! At some point, I’d like to open an etsy shop. I’m still trying to figure out if I want to focus my interests or just sell a hodgepodge of things I make. Please check back and find out!
