Happy Friday! Scraps, here, with some of Alchemist Lori’s experiments with our new Stamp Vamp TechniKit. Today we’ll focus on the plasticine stamps–made from a clay that is sturdier than kid’s Play-Doh but that doesn’t dry out like sculpting clays.
Lori has coiled some of the clay into a rose-type shape, shaped some circles that have details carved into them, a long petal and a free-form leaf shape to start with.
Inked up with craft paint with a brayer, they are pretty easy to combine into shapes, like her sunflower, or make a pattern for your next background.
The coiled rose turned out fabulous, doncha think? Definitely card material!
Lori notes that “the clay is very squishy and doesn’t keep a shape for long, but that keeps things from getting too boring!! You can definitely see the possibilities are endless!!”
Plasticine is a great way to try out some limited-run stamping, and with the more use, the picture changes subtly each pass. I can see this having definite potential for some progressive background designs.
