Rubber Stamping: Get Creative with Stamps, Rollers and Other Printmaking Techniques
This beautiful book provides a complete guide to printing with rubber stamps as well as a handful of alternative methods such as using rollers, plaster, or clay. Beginning with a foreword by the artist Rob Ryan and a short history of rubber stamping, it goes on to explain the technical basics: what equipment to use, how to carve your stamps, register multiple colours, and mask prints.
At the heart of the book are over forty inventive projects and step-by-step examples. These include designing typefaces and repeat patterns, collaborative mail art, creating books and zines, printing on cookies, body art, graffiti, making portraits, and translucent and 3D artwork.
This highly accessible book will appeal to creatives and crafters of all ages.
