How to Stamp and Carve Rolling Stamps: Roll Out the Backgrounds Article

Article 1: How to Stamp and Carve Rolling Stamps

The Workshop: Roll Out the Backgrounds by Linda Calverley

Linda had been making flat stamps for some time but one day decided to expand her knowledge by exploring the concepts of rolling stamps. After purchasing a small set to play with, she came up with ideas using recycled items, bits and pieces from her treasure (junk) drawer, and fun foam. Her easy to use technique for stamp carving is both fun and inspiring, but be warned, rolling stamps can be addicting! Along with directions for how to make a stamp for rolling, she provides valuable tips on how to stamp using your newly created objects.


Custom Art Stamps and Stencils: Letter Imperfect Article

Article 2: Custom Art Stamps and Stencils

Letter Imperfect: Hand-cut Stencils and Alphabet Stamps Invoke the Graffiti Look by Leann Meixner

Leann always loved the raw look that hand-cut stencils and alphabet stamps gave to her projects. In this article she shares her love of stamps, and shows you how to use a photograph as the base for your designs, and how to transfer that image onto your material of choice for stamp carving. In addition, you'll find tips for adding distressed marks and personality to your custom art stamps.


Using and Carving Foam Craft Stamps: Faux Silkscreen Article

Article 3: Using and Carving Foam Craft Stamps

The Workshop: Faux Silkscreen by Patricia Gaignat

At first, Patricia wasn't particularly interested in foam craft stamps, but after purchasing a sheet of craft foam and creating a few stamps, she was hooked. Carving foam craft stamps is much simpler than carving hard rubber or linoleum, and the results are still impressive. In this article, she demonstrates how to transfer a simple sketch to craft foam, then cut apart the piece to create individual elements, like the pieces in a puzzle. Then using different colored inks, she re-creates the image with each piece. This is the perfect technique for beginners to try, and even though it is low-tech, it still delivers very artistic results.


Reduction Printing: Printing Back to Front, Color by Color Article

Article 4: Reduction Printing

Reduction Printing: Printing Back to Front, Color by Color by Lisa Thorpe

Many examples of reduction printing can be found in the art of China and Japan, and among the works of many famous artists as well. Traditionally, reduction prints were made using wood blocks, but Lisa discovered that a soft eraser-like material works as a great (and easier) alternative. In this article she will help you to understand the concepts of reduction printing, and get you started with a basic design.
