What You Will Need

  • Eraser
  • Wood Carving Tool Set
  • Stamp Ink My favorite for crafting is Staz-on, however, it is permanent.
  • Pencil


  • Start by sketching a rouch outline of the stamp shape you want to make directly on the eraser with a pencil. You can get as detailed as you would like with your sketch.
  • Then start using wood carving tools to remove the eraser material. I like to start by removing as much material as possible from around the outside.
  • Once your outside is fairly clean, you can start adding details to your stamp. Again, use whatever size and shape of wood carving tool works best for you.
  • Once you think you are done, test the stamp with some ink on some scrap paper. You may find you need to remove more material in some areas to get a clean impression. Keep working with the stamp and the wood carving tools until you have a stamp you love!
