Exploring Pattern

I’ve been making work about diabetes for a few years now and I’ve explored several different materials and approaches along the way. During this time, I’ve encountered several challenges.

Signature Stamp

stampcollage

Hello! Today I want to share something I purchased off Etsy last year. I was interested in commissioning a custom rubber signature stamp to use on my hand-painted clothing pieces, so the first place I looked was on Etsy. I found a listing for a laser-engraved custom stamp where you could choose the font and the message. I contacted the shop owner and asked if it was possible to make a stamp of my signature. She said yes so I sent her the image and it was made and shipped to me–simple! I’m super satisfied with this purchase and recommend the shop. The price for the stamp was reasonable considering the amount of use I’ll get out of it. Click here to visit Salt Marketplace on Etsy :]

I tried the stamp with regular ink on paper first and it turned out great!

Then I tried the stamp on fabric with the fabric paint I normally use. It works well, but I have to be careful when I put the paint on the stamp because it gets into the crevices easily.

Overall, I am very happy with the stamp. Thanks for reading!
