carved rubber erasers

I've been wanting to make facial components out of rubber erasers carved into stamps. I finally got around to making enough eyes, noses and mouths to get some expressive faces. One problem I have with carving the stamps is - I never know what they will turn out like until I ink and print them. I just can't visualize them. and I almost always carve them backwards. the hooked nose on the left was supposed to turn to the left. Ooops. This mouth can go either upturned or downturned. I'm sure these will be used in altered books and post cards. I'll be carving more soon.

  1. if you use your hooked nose to stamp onto a piece of carving material, then you will have a mirror image stamp. Could be very interesting :)
