Flamingo print

Today I subbed at the high school for art class, one of my faves because I like to get to do the project of the day. The upper classes were making block prints by carving into wood or a thick slab of linoleum, rolling the stamp with paint, then stamping their designs. I wanted in on the action, so I grabbed a thin piece of balsam from the box, drew my design, then chiselled away at it to make my wood stamp. I was so pleased with it, I brought it home and framed it! Oh, yeah – I’m going to find another use for my flamingo stamp. I like it as-is with the paint on the wood. Too big to use as necklace, though.
