100 Printmaking Tools Day 15

A few weeks ago I posted about my 100 day project where I panned to work on creating 1 printmaking tool a day for the next 100 days.  Well, I’ve decided to modify this project just a bit.  When I started making my first tools, it just made sense to work on several at once.  So I drew out several stamps, cut them all at once and completed them over several days.  I realized I would most likely work this way instead of working on one at a time.

So I’m modifying my project to be 100 printmaking tools in 100 days or less.  And here is my first batch; a total of 14 stamps.

 

And here they are printed on both paper and mylar. The mylar is so that I can audition them on fabric.

I’ve already started of the next batch of stamps.  So the project continues.

100 Day Project Update #1

I’ve been putting in a little time each day on my 100 day project, creating my mark making tools.  So far I’ve completed 3 stamps.  They are all backed with a transparent backing and the excess cut away.

For the backing I like to use these flexible cutting mats from the Dollar Tree.  They are transparent, so I can see where I am placing the stamp.  They are also strong but flexible at the same time and easy to cut with scissors.

And at two in a pack for $1 you can’t beat the price.
