Carving in rubber


Peg sent me these soft rubber blocks, for stamps, a while ago. I've carved some shapes, having my organized collections in mind.
YouTube (and the rest of the internet) is like a treasure island, you can find anything, learn everything. Like this - Gel medium photo transfer, looks like fun.

I just found out about rubber stamps, how weird...after years and years of linoleum block printing I thought I should have heard of Speedball's rubber carving blocks by now. Never too late, eh?

Hi! Just wondering if you make a living on these things or do you have another job/profession?

Cheers

Nina, not as a rubber carver, no. But as an illustrator and painter, yes.

Cool C....I just bought 4 pieces of cheap rubbers at Søstrene Green yesterday...haha...Though they´re not that big...but lying here waiting...Like the buttom photo and that the print is various in that brown color...I have tried to transfer black/white drawings to canvas like in the link...It´s great...

I like the organic shapes. Are you planning to use them in your paintings or drawings repeatedly? I'm just curious of the ideas these rubber blocks might have given you.

Oh, jag blir så glad av att se sånadär filmer på youtube! Härligt! Man kan göra överföringar med aceton också, men det visste du säkert.
Tack för helgen! Jättemysigt att se alla era fina arbeten!
