Day 230. Eraser Stamp Bird

15 Aug

One pencil eraser. One Giant Ink Pad with permanent dye. And a little bit of time – tapping and dapping with the inked-up tip of my pencil eraser. That is pretty much how today’s Bird-A-Day art was created. I had this idea of ink stamping a bird, using some ordinary objects for the stamp. I soon discovered using pennies got more ink on me than the coins. By trial and error, I decided an object that kept my fingers away from the ink pad was a smart direction. It’s rather ironic, using an eraser, to create art with permanent ink. And trust me, this stuff is permanent. It does not want to come off your fingers. Yipes.

    Thank you for bird watching. I took a little scrubbing with elbow grease, as my mother used to say. But my fingers are finally ink free.

    I love your blog- because of how creative it is- the eraser stamp bird is a brilliant example. Hopefully this will inspire regular people like me to be more creative about what surrounds me. Thank you
