Free Mini Guide: My Favourite Block Printing Supplies
This mini guide contains a complete list of all my block printing tools I personally use for my block printing work on an almost daily basis, including some personal comments. I also included a one-page quick starter guide for those of you starting out and wanting to know which tools are the bare minimum. Additionally, I added a (far from complete) list of art supply shops around the world to help you get started.
Free mini guide: 5 fun ways to make stamps with your kids (or for yourself)
This guide will show you how you can make stamps from materials that you (most likely) already have at home. It contains five sample projects plus a bonus project. It is intended to give you some ideas on how you could spend a fun afternoonwith your kids getting creative and playing around making stamps and printing cute shapes and patterns. The guide is also intended for any adult who wants to give stamping a try without buying any specialized lino-cutting equipment. I list a variety of materials and paints, hoping that you have at least some of them at home. Pick whatever you have and see where it takes you.
Personally, while I love to get new art supplies, I don’t want to buy new materials and tools all the time to just have some fun for an afternoon or quickly try something new – especially when kids are involved and things should to be quick and easy. That’s why I made this guide because you do not need fancy equipment to have a little stamping fun.
