This is the perfect starter kit and contains everything that you need to design, carve and print your own unique stamps.
The kit contains the following: - Instructions sheet - Inspiration sheet/templates - carving tool handle - 6 interchangeable blades (3 x "V" gouges, 2 x "U" gouges and a number 5 blade - 150 x 90 mm blue vinyl carving block - 75 x 77 mm Soft Cut block - A black mini ink pad - suitable for use on fabric, paper and wood - A5 (approx) sheets of; tracing paper; Japanese Masa Paper; Natural White Lino Printing Paper; Bright White 200 gsm paper
Stamp Making is really fun (and addictive) hobby! Once you have made that first stamp you realise that the possibilities are endless and you can make stamps to suit any occasion or to stamp on any surface! I have set the kit up so that it also includes a block similar to Lino, so if you are also thinking of giving Lino printing a try this would be the perfect kit for that too (you would just need to purchase a roller and some block printing ink).
The vinyl block that is included in the kit cuts like butter and is the perfect introduction to carving stamps. The block can be easily cut into smaller stamps with a craft knife (not included), or can be used to create larger stamps or blocks!
The Soft Cut Block that has been included is closer to Lino in it's appearance, it is slightly harder to cut than the vinyl block but still much easy than carving original Lino, it is soft and pliable and can be used to create stamps or as single block that can be carved with your very own work or art, which you can then print again and again!
I really hope that this kit will inspire you to get creative and make your own designed rubber stamps! I love to see the things that other people create, so please tag me @paperandsmiles (on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter).
