I wanted to make a rubber stamp of my logo to stamp on envelopes, so I thought it would be fun to make one myself! I went and searched on the web what supplies I would need to get started, and it turns out you do not need much at all to get started in stamp carving.
Basically you just need these 3 items: a rubber printing block, stamp carving tool, and ink! Below listed was what I had bought for making a stamp carving of my logo and a cute rabbit 😀
Rubber stamp carving tool:
Speedball Linoleum Cutter Assortment #1
Ink Stamp Pads:
Ranger Archival Dye Ink Stamp Pad
I printed my logo out and traced it on a tracing paper with pencil, then transferred it onto the printing block (the image will look backwards on the printing block). Then I went ahead and started carving around the pencil lines. The printing block is very soft so it’s very easy to carve!
Here’s the finished product of the cute rabbit carved 😀
