Potato Prints :: The Making Of...
This afternoon we gathered at my house (mainly because it's comfy and I have a rather large array of ink pads) to do a bunch of potato prints. Here are some in progress photos and some shots of the potatoes themselves.
Some of us had never done them before and it was really fun to try! Obviously some were more successful than others, but it was useful to have the time to figure out what worked better in the carving. I think we all channeled our inner kid, and reminisced about craft projects that we used to do when we were younger. It sounds silly, but I think that helped us get more accurate results (our creatures are childlike, young and naive).
