Large block stamp with mandala pattern produced by Magenta of Canada. (Company is still in business, but item could not currently be found in their inventory.) The stamp has a penciled inventory number of 14342-L on the edge.
In addition to using traditional dye or pigment inks, this stamp design lends itself to the watercolor technique, applying water color paints or water-based ink markers directly to the stamp. With this technique, the individual components could be detailed to create a very colorful image. This stamp would also produce elegant results with watermark ink and mica powders.
Single stamp - block measures about 3 1/2” square.
Gently used and in like new condition with no staining on the rubber. There is some smudging of the reference image. Stamp has a monogram on the side, in permanent marker.
Stamp has been cleaned with professional rubber stamp cleaners (no lanolin).
