Use of Texture Stamps and Rollers

Using any material that is absorbent you will be able to create texture, design or imagery. Wood, clay,or plaster can be carved with negative spaces, shapes or lines on the surface of it and then when rolled or used as a stamp or paddle on the surface of the clay it then becomes a positive image. If words were to be carved they need to be done in a mirror image which is the same as the technique in printmaking. Linoleum blocks (with an oil resist) can be used well with clay. Wood blocks from old prints can work even better.
