Nearing the finish line of The 100 Day Project

 The finish line is in sight! There are less than 10 days remaining in The 100 Day Project. I'm happy with the progress I've made and things I've learned with my hand-carved stamp project.

More mixed media

I've gotten more adventurous with the stamp carving over the 90+ days and have incorporated watercolors and slow drawing with the stamping.

New tools and materials

From a tip from a fellow stamp carver, I got 6 or 8 rubber stamp rounds that are pre-cut, so circles are more precise. I've added the VersaFine ink pads from Tsukineko which provide good ink coverage. And I've added a few more acrylic stamp blocks to my toolbox.

I have 69 hand-carved stamps. Two of them have two sides that I use, so there are 71 images.

I'll be looking back through my sketchbooks after the final day. I'm sure I'll see the evolution and improvement of the prints. I'm having a lot of fun with this practice and will likely continue after Day 100.
