#8 Stamping

Flockmen are a wonderful tool for creating artworks of every color and style. Try using one as a stamp in this simple stamping artwork activity.

Stamping with Flockmen

What you need:

  • 5+ Flockmen (depending on how many colors you use)
  • Art paper
  • Poster paints
  • Artist’s palette or recycled plastic lid
  • Water in a jar
  • 5 x hair ties or plastic bands
  • Paintbrushes
  • Plastic film wrap
  • Old newspaper
  • Art smock
  • A clean, flat surface such as a table top

Challenge Instructions:

  • Place newspaper on a table to cover the surface, and set up your art supplies on the table
  • Take a single Flockmen and cover it completely with plastic wrap, pulling tight so one surface can be used as a stamp. You can tie it with a hair tie (which acts as a sort of ‘handle’).
  • Pour/squeeze the paint onto the palette and spread out with the paintbrush to make an ‘ink pad’ large enough to dip the Flockmen in
  • Dip the plastic covered Flockmen in face down, and place on the blank sheet of paper like a stamp.
  • Continue stamping with various colours (you can cover multiple Flockmen with plastic film wrap so you don’t have to keep swapping for different colors)
  • Be as creative as you like, and let inspiration flow!
