Whirlygig Collective is going to Birmingham Zine Festival, and i've made us a stamp so we can stamp ourselves on things.
I made it out of a rubber, like eraser rubber, using the same relief technique as lino/wood cu, then stuck it to a bit of scrap mdf, and screwed a handle on it.
I even used a lino cutting blade on parts, (taped to a pencil because i've lost my holder somewhere in the most recent house move) it was very odd though, as the rubber by nature is obviously very bouncey, not at all like lino, and if anyone ever tells you it is, they're lying.
