The Stamp Making Process

I can't seem to tear myself away from my desk these days.  I've got a secret project in the works, which hopefully I'll be able to share with you soon.

For now here's a quick look at the process behind the hand-carved stamps I've been making.  

I start with a drawing, which I cut out with a fine-point blade.

Placing the images on the rubber.

With a pencil, I trace the cut-outs to make a silhouette, then add the detail by hand.

Cutting out the individual stamps.

Carving the stamp.

The finished product: An inked stamp and the stamped image on paper.
