one potato

Little across-the-road neighbour had her second birthday recently. Because she loves playing with water I made this raindrop paper to wrap my gift to her. It's a potato print.

Here's a good tutorial on how to make potato prints and this is what worked for me
  • Keep it simple.
  • Apply paint to your potato stamp using a foam brush.
  • Do a few test stamps on a scrap of your chosen paper. This should give you an idea of how much paint you need on the stamp - too little and the print is too faint, too much and it ripples.
  • You're hand printing. It's the imperfections that make it special.
  • Aim for good coverage.
