Tim's Rubber Stamp

Here is Tim. I'm working on another stamp and shared a little block of rubber with him. He had his initial designed and ready to carve in about 2 minutes. I don't know how he did it but he figured out how to transfer the design onto the rubber. You know, whatever your design is, it will be backwards when you use the stamp. I couldn't figure out how to transfer my sketch to the rubber, so I just did a freehand drawing onto the rubber while looking at my sketch. Tim knew of my dilemma from the night before and...well I don't know how he did that. I think he did his sketch with a lead pencil and then rubbed it onto the rubber and...wala...just perfectly backwards. He's a doozy and says he is going to be a designer when he grows up. He plans to design toys for one thing.

    I really have to try it out some day. But I can't figure out where to get proper rubber here in Oslo..... :-/
    Guess my oldest boy would have loved to try it out as well.
    Thank you for your nice comments on my blog! I really appreciate it. :-)
