|I pressed chives from my garden into clay to make a stamp.|
I cut my first batch of soap today. I was really surprised by how soft it was! I know that the book said it would be soft enough to take a stamp, but really, it was like clay right out of a bag, cut open and set out for ten minutes. I was pumped to try stamping with my collection of lyno-carved stamps and bisque clay images. In the end, both worked, but the release from the soap was super easy on the lyno. I could also bang away on the lyno with a mallet to make a strong indentation without fear of damaging the stamp itself. Many of my bisque stamps are so loved that I am really very careful with them.
