Extraordinary Prints form Ordinary Objects - E

E is for Eraser!

Excellent fabric pigments are available at

Want to create your own stamps?

In printing the alphabet we are already at E!
One of the easiest ways to make your own stamps:
Cut your design from a cheap white eraser.

- Carve out your design with an x-acto knife.
- Make a simple stamp pad out of a piece of foam.
- Spread the pigment on the stamp pad.
- Print away - and have fun!

On this piece I painted the fabric with Colour Vie pigments.
While the pigment was still wet, I used the eraser stamps
to remove pigment colour.

Here I painted the background colour, then printed with
the different eraser stamps.

For this napkin and placemat I used the eraser end of a pencil.
