Many of you have said you’d love to see the projects we do for the art class I teach every week in the studio. Here’s one Valentine’s themed one from last week: heart potato stamping…
(Apologies for the iphone photos! A bit too busy with the kids to properly document with the big camera)
I’ve made a lot of potato stamps before, you can find instructions here. The idea is so simple. You carve out a shape into a potato with a pairing knife. It only takes a minute or so, and you can create any shape and details you want. Just be sure to brush on the paint, and allow a couple stamps on a discard sheet before stamping on your final project.
The paint can be a bit slippery, so a reminder for the kids: every heart is beautiful, even if it’s not exactly what you expected.
