Coffee grinder

Start your week right with a nice cup of coffee.
Made this ity-bitty stamp with the Japanese carving block from It's the ideal material to work with if you're doing very detailed stamps.

What makes this carving different from other carving blocks is that its surface is layered with a different colored rubber that helps you see where you've carved your pattern.

It measures roughly 1 cm in thickness so you can go without mounting your stamp after its carved.

What I especially like about it is how easily my drawing with a regular mechanical pencil registers on the surface of the block.
Carving block prepped with blue pigment ink (ink pad). That's one technique to help you see your drawing better when you carve and allow the graphite from the pencil to stick to the carving block.

and there its all done!
