You never know what makes a great printing tool......

Honestly, I didn't start out with this in mind:  I was simply doing something in the kitchen.  One minute, I was prepping vegetables for dinner.  Before I catch myself I was back in my studio with this in-hand, looking for my paint!  What do you think it is?
It is the base of some sort of leafy veggie that came in my local produce box.
It tasted like a cross between bok choy and chard.

When I got to the base of the bunch I loved the look of it!  Here are a few of the marks I made with it:

these are artist trading cards made with watercolor paper

here is a swatch of mulberry paper stamped with opaque white acrylic paint


  1. I love vegetable printing! Have you tried an artichoke? Onions are great, too!

  2. I haven't experimented with this printing resource, but certainly can imagine the possibilities. I bought a cabbage today and plan to eat half and print with the other. It seems like a cabbage would make a fine thermofax image.....

  3. That celery makes a perfect rose stamp!


I love to hear from my readers! Please drop me a line!
