Supplies needed to make a carved stamp from a Tombow MONO Plastic Eraser.

 

Step 1: Stamp Image

Begin by cutting a piece of scrap paper the size of the MONO Eraser.

Then, use the Fudenosuke Brush Pen to write “happy” in your favorite lettering style. If you haven’t done hand lettering yet, Tombow has FREE worksheets to get started.

Write the word for a carved stamp with the Tombow Fudenosuke Pen on paper.

Next, turn the paper over and fill in the lettering with the pencil.

Set the paper on the top of the eraser with the scribbled pencil side touching the eraser. Then, trace the lettering with the pencil. Press firmly to transfer the pencil graphite. Don’t press too hard to indent the eraser.

Step 2: Carving the Stamp

Now, the MONO Eraser is ready to carve. If you haven’t done something like this before, it can be tricky. The MONO Eraser material needs to be removed about 1/8th an inch, leaving the black lettering raised.

Start with the smallest carving tip and trace around the written word. Move slowly and carefully, one wrong knick and it will show on the stamped image.

Use the hobby knife to get into the hard to reach places (like the loops of the Y, PP’s, A and H).
