DIY eraser stamps

Hard carved eraser stamps are all the go. Some designs are so beautifully brilliant, it is hard to imaging that that they are in fact carved by someones hand.  There are some very talented artists out there.

I have always wanted to try my hand at hand carving, though I’m not sure how steady of hand I’d be. Hard carving was a component at school when I was about 13 years old, but I have to say that the subject wasn’t taken too seriously back then. Oh, how I’d paid more attention in that lesson!

Here are some lovely examples of some beautiful hand carved erasers.

This link to geninne’s art blog has an excellent tutorial on how to make your own hand carved stamps. It’s worth taking a look at. I’m going to give it a go. Think of all the uses for your own stamps- gift wrapping papers, gift tags, cards, labels, the list is endless. Would this be something that you would try your hand at too?

    I think this is so fun! I actually made a stamp at Christmas time (though I used actual stamp rubber because I couldn’t find a cheap eraser large enough). I made a silhouette of an australian shepherd with reindeer antlers to use on our Christmas cards that I never sent out. Oops. It was definitely challenging, but I love how it came out and that it’s hand made!!!
