  • Make Your Own Stamp Pads | Carle Museum
    with water so that it can more easily soak up the paint The first time you load the pad it will take a fair amount of paint Now its ready to use Easy right If you plan to use the stamp pad the next day just slip it into a zippered bag to keep moist Let it air dry with the paint on if you won t be using it again within a few days Mold will grow if on a wet stamp pad if it s left too long in a sealed bag When you re ready to use the stamp pad again just spritz it with a little water and add more paint If you ve been to the studio you know we offer a specific selection of materials to explore and we arrange multiple sets of those materials around the room so they are available to whomever stops in to experiment When we include stamp pads in our projects we usually use just one color in all the stamp pads That s so they don t all end up turning brownish black from the stamps traveling around the room Kids usually notice color attibutes before shape or pattern so by keeping the stamp pads to a single color shape and pattern could share the spotlight with color We did also offer colored pencils in this project so that more colors could be included in our guests designs We ve used traditional black ink stamp pads in projects before but we find they work best for smaller rubber stamps They aren t ideal for our large round handled stamps They also make parents of young children nervous with all their blackness and permanence so we try to avoid setting up our guests for stress about non washable messes Kids do love the drama of black but that s a subject for another time We use a lot of different kind of stamps in the studio some are purchased through art and school suppliers but many are home made Check our our posts Make Your Own Foam Stamp and Printing With Children Roll with It for some home made stamp ideas by Meghan Burch Tags collage papers pattern patterns and papers polystyrene prints prints patterns paper stamping styrofoam tempera paint upholstery foam This entry was posted on Monday April 23rd 2012 at 10 45 am and is filed under By Meghan Burch Elementary School Every Day Art Program Homemade Materials and Tools Middle School Mixed Media Preschool Printmaking You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions Sona says February 12 2016 at 2 05pm Awesome reply Contributors Meghan Burch Diana MacKenzie Categories About This Blog 1 Bookmaking 24 By Diana

  • Make Your Own Foam Stamp | Carle Museum
    Art Studio In this project guests cut shapes out of 2 x2 rectangles of sticky backed craft foam and then arranging the shapes in a single layer on a small rectangle of polystyrene foam like the kind that is used in food packaging Names and initials were popular designs E made a one with her initials I observed as she made and printed it interested to see her reaction as she peeled back her first print I thought she might be upset that the E s read backwards so I approached her and asked what she thought of her print She was happy with how it turned out but for her second stamp she wanted to make her entire first name Together we talked about how to cut and arrange the letters so they would read correctly when stamped Some guests chose to leave their stamp behind for others to use We displayed a selection of them on our front wall to inspire our guests designs If you don t have any foam at home you can use interesting or discarded objects as stamps Check out Diana s great stamping and printing ideas here and here You ll also want to visit my post Make Your Own Stamp Pads to learn how easy it is to make stamp pads at home or for an entire classroom by Meghan Burch Tags collage papers craft foam design homemade materials patterns and papers polystyrene prints prints patterns paper public art program stamping styrofoam Every Day Art Program This entry was posted on Thursday April 19th 2012 at 1 51 pm and is filed under By Meghan Burch Elementary School Homemade Materials and Tools Middle School Mixed Media Preschool Printmaking You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions Contributors Meghan Burch Diana MacKenzie Categories About This Blog 1 Bookmaking 24 By Diana MacKenzie 76 By Meghan Burch 63 Classes 22 Collage 66 Displays Window Shades 11 Drawing 50 Elementary School 97 Every Day Art Program 63 Found Materials 48 High School 25 Homemade Materials and Tools 16 Infants and Toddlers 47 Internship Program 25 Light 12 Middle School 33 Mixed Media 66 Nature 46 Our Approach 22 Our Favorite Materials 10 Outreach 23 Painting 57 Paper 37 Preschool 81 Printmaking 39 Professional Development 29 Resources 5 Sculpture 44 Space to Create 2 Special Events 90 Special Guests and Artist Visits 34 Archive February 2016 1 January 2016 1 December 2015 4 November 2015 3 October 2015 2 September 2015 2 August 2015 4 July 2015 3 June 2015 3 May 2015 1 April 2015 2 March 2015 3 February 2015 4 January 2015 1 December 2014 2 November 2014 4 October 2014 5 September 2014
