Take an exciting journey into printing with custom-carved stamps! In this complete stamp-carving workshop, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer covers every aspect of creating and using rubber stamps, including carving linear and curved designs, alphabets, complex and repeating geometrical shapes, and image transfers.
After carving your own unique stamps, you'll also learn:
* How to combine and layer stamps into original designs.
* How to design stamps that work together as well as individually.
* How to create stamps that combine with or enhance other stamps (hand carved or commercial).
* How to create complex, layered effects that resemble screen-printing.
This book also includes simple projects that explore various applications for stamping, including printing on different surfaces, such as fabric, leather, paper, and canvas. Find your "authentic" design voice and get carving today!

"If you like printing and stitching, check out this book. It's top notch." --The Grand Rapids Press

"The author is generous in sharing details of the brands she prefers, of websites where you can download free designs and how to achieve little details to make your designs more unique. For each design there are examples of how the stamps have been used for book covers, tags and jewellery. I particularly liked the method of creating your own stamps from photographs." --Workshop on the Web
