After cutting off the shoots, the potatoes are halved, and then handles cut into the top of each one.
Next the tricky bit - cutting the bottoms into shapes. Despite starting with 8 stamps I was only able to make 4 prints! The biggest tip I can give is remember anything you cut will print with a mirror image - my Z looks great in potato, but was backwards once printed!
I wanted to go for two different types of picture, so we did:
*PVA glue on black paper
While the glue was still wet we sprinkled white glitter all over, hoping for a zebra effect.
It was lots of fun but with the backwards Z, it came out more as bright splodges
The painting was great fun and kept her occupied a good 20 minutes.
The more she stamped, the more the paint mixed and gave some really funky prints
There was more dragging than printing but it was a good fun session with some pretty prints
