Learn the Beautiful Art of Chip Carving

   Chip Carving is fun, relaxing and rewarding. The unique concept of using pre-made designs on rubber stamps makes it even more so for the beginner. Rubber stamps eliminate the time consuming, and often frustrating process of drawing, and re-drawing designs necessary for practice.

   You will learn the basics of the art of chip carving. Using the six rubber stamps, inkpad, and step-by-step 25-page workbook, you will start carving:

    • Basic triangle shapes, the foundation of chip carving;

    • Triangles in combinations to create beautiful border designs;

    • Adjacent triangles, which produce the 'sharp edge' between adjacent chips that are so prevalent in chip carving;

    • Rosettes, the beautiful circular designs that often mark the centerpiece of a chip carving design; and

    • Flowing freeform designs where creativity is unlimited.

Each step-by-step exercise builds upon the previous one to provide you a firm foundation of the techniques associated with chip carving.
