Potato Prints for Your Home

Christy Ferer says potato stamps are made by slicing the potato crosswire in half to get a round surface of 2 or 3 inches. Place a small amount of slightly diluted acrylic paint in a small bowl and place the potato relief or stamp straight down into it, wiping the edge of the relief on the bowl before each stamping to prevent drips. Note that commercial stamps from sources in the Resource Guide can be ordered with stamp pads, but you will find a wider range of colors in acrylic paints.

  • Stick-on letters or alphabet stamps
  • stars
  • dots
  • numbers
  • animals
  • fleurs-de-lis
  • fruits
