Just before heading out to California I made a little something something for my housemates. We fondly call our home Lady House, since we are all ladies, and I wanted to create something special to represent our space. As you can see, I made a stamp.
These pictures are making it very clear to me that I need to clean this little guy! I’ve been using gold block printing ink and dabbing it on with a paintbrush since I have yet to purchase a roller (funds are limited, you know). It’s a little cakey. What I’d actually like to get is a medium sized ink pad. Maybe the pad would help distribute the ink more evenly! I guess that’s what the roller’s for…I’m thinking out loud here.
Sadly, I didn’t take pictures as I was making it, but to give you a sense of the process (though on a much larger and cooler scale), here’s a video of Rui Abreu creating the typeface Aria.
