Stamped Pears

I've been wanting to try this for a while.  You carve your design into a foam tray (like a carry-out container), then roll on the paint and stamp onto the paper.  Not as easy as it seemed ... I need to figure out how to make it neater, but it's kinda cute I think.

  1. I agree, not as easy as it looks. my son did this project in art class a few years ago and I loved his prints and tried it for myself (thinking if elementary school kids can do it, so can I). but it was tricky for me to get an even line, and tricky to know how much paint to apply. I finally found I had better luck with blockprinting ink than with acrylic paint because it didn't settle into the lines as much so the prints were better. I like your sweet pear!
