Personalized Handmade Stamps
Things you need; a tracing paper, a pencil, an eraser or linoleum board, Linoleum cutters(v gouge liner and u shaped cutter) and stamp pads.
1. Draw an image with your name on a tracing paper. Think about an image that symbolizes you. For example I made an guitar stamp for somebody who loves to play. I looked for an image I liked in the free clip art sites, printed the image in the size I needed and traced it on the tracing paper. I chose a rabbit for the sample because the 2011 is the year of rabbit.
3. Curve the outline of the image and name with a v gouge liner and curve the excess with u shaped cutter. When you finished curving, clean the surface and STAMP. If you don’t like the result, curve more until you like the image.
