So of course I drew a little image of a dog, no surprises there! and burnished it onto the carving block. I had some idea of what to do from reading Geninne Zlatkis's book, "Making an Impression: Designing and Creating Artful Stamps" - a great book.
I grabbed my tools and started.
Et voici, le chien:
|Freshly carved, yay!|
Here he is with a couple of impressions:
|Woof, woof and woof!|
I had a lot of fun and I will be making more.
