Carving the design into the potatoMaterials:

1 potato (to make 2 stamps)

paring knife

marker

paint (I used acrylic)

paper plate

paper

Directions:

Stamping with your stamp1. Cut the potato in half and draw the design you want on the exposed inside. Keep it simple.

2. Cut out the negative spaces (the parts that you don’t want to be in the final image.)

3. Spread some paint onto the paper plate, you want to it to be fairly thin. Dip and stamp. (I did one leaf for my clover, then painted a stem on.) Now finish as you like.
