Someone yesterday mentioned that they use bisque clay (once fired clay) for their stamps. So do I – in fact, I’m developing quite a stamp collection. Although the high-density foam is easy to carve and doesn’t get wet or stick to the clay, it does wear down over time. Someone once told me that the foam is perfect because the stamps break “just when they’re about to become cliche.”
Bisque stamps, on the other hand, are very durable. As long as I don’t drop them too many times, they could last me a lifetime. Many of my bisque stamps are “roulettes” that I carved so I can roll them evenly around my pieces. Boy are they a pain in the a** to make!!!! But they are excellent and very useful when they are done. I don’t know what I would do without them!
