Potato Stamp Art

Hi there guys, we will be sharing another artwork. This time we'll be making "Potato Stamp Art"
Here are the materials we need:
Potato
Water Color
Knife
Bond Paper
Actually you can use potatoes of any size and any variety. With a little creativity, the lowly spud can be used to make decorative prints that can adorn personalized gift cards or decorative gift wrappers.

Get a potato and cut it into half ( with pencil or any pointed material like a small knife), outline your design into the raw surface. You can start of with some simple designs like a star, a fish or even a clover leaf.

Now using that small knife, cut around the outline of the design to a depth of 1/4 inch and then cut the background of the shape it self.
Here, i make a clover shape potato stamp.

Tadah! we used Star and clover shape!
For colors, you can use water colors , which you can mix with a little water. Just dip or spread the color with brush and apply it to a suitable surface.
Tadah! here's the work of my brother!

So cool!


and here's mine...errrr okay my bro's work is much better.
