I have a stock of erasers I got from The Stationary Box just before it went out of business 3" X 4 & 1/4" I got quite a lot of them. I find they nearly always meet my needs.

Now if the room would just stop rocking up and down, everything would be fine! Lol!

After my last narrowboat holiday, the room rocked for about 2 weeks.  I was convinced it was never going to stop then one day I realised it wasn't doing it any more.

Was v. unpleasant at the time.

This rocking isn't strong, I only notice it when I am standing or sitting still.

I've now done a new set of sun moon stamps created while on Salhouse Broad, now I'm halfway through doing a reverse set for these.


Test Prints for newest set:

I'm finished with the moon and its reverse image, now I just have to finish the sun's reverse stamp.

Awesome stamps fran. By the way, after doing some testing, I found you can use normal polymer clay,(Such as premo, fimo and cernit) to make stamps. And they stamp nicely on paper, but also just add a little realeasing medium(Such as cornstarch/water) and stamp into polymer clay!

Thank you.

Yes, I love making texture stamps, like this:


Which I textured by hand with various implements (ball tools, pens etc etc).

And these:

Made from pumice stone, coral, sponge and limpets.

And even this:

Which is made from a carved stamp that I created on an eraser then stamped into clay.  A sort of double double stamp!  Lol!

They do say that the best clay for making texture sheets is that Bake n Bend super flexible stuff, but I don't have any of that myself.  But I'd love to try it.

Update on stamping with poly clay-
So, I was playing around with my new stamp. And found by mounting it on some cheap funfoam(You know, like craft foam) and stamping with some under it on paper makes a huge difference.

Fran- Yes, it is, A favorite youtuber of mine make molds and stamps out of it. But Its way to expensive.
