Take an exciting journey into printing with custom-carved stamps! In this complete stamp-carving workshop, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer covers every aspect of creating and using rubber stamps, including carving linear and curved designs, alphabets, complex and repeating geometrical shapes, and image transfers.

After carving your own unique stamps, you'll also learn:

  • How to combine and layer stamps into original designs.
  • How to design stamps that work together as well as individually.
  • How to create stamps that combine with or enhance other stamps (hand carved or commercial).
  • And how to create complex, layered effects that resemble screen printing.
This book also includes simple projects that explore various applications for stamping, including printing on different surfaces such as fabric, leather, paper, and canvas. Find your "authentic" design voice and get carving today!

This book goes way beyond your basic "how to". She teaches how to layer stamps, make your own ink pads and design repeating patterns
