I've been doing a lot of stamp carving lately and as a consequence, I've got lots of leftover rubber scraps. I hate to waste it, so I make "trash" stamps: random little designs on the leftover scraps. The first stamp.
How hand blocked" fabrics from India are actually made? These wood blocks are used to hand stamp the elaborate patterns so intricately applied to the fabrics. It's an amazing process and fascinating to watch. Very time consuming!
