Video Tutorial: Moldable Foam Stamps

  • 3

I was playing around the other day doing some fabric stamping using moldable foam stamp blocks. If you’ve never used these types of stamping blocks before, they are fun and easy to use. But best of all they’re reusable so you can use them again and again by impressing them with different types of designs.
This short video explains. (If you’re reading this post in an rss reader you may have to click through to the website to view the video.)
PS You can find various types of moldable foam stamp blocks at Dharma Trading – have fun!

  1. Thank you for a lovely clear video showing how easy it is. I have one of these blocks and have not used it yet – now I have no excuse!
    Lovely to hear a fellow Aussie accent!

  2. Thank you very much for this little free tutorial. I always wondered how they actually worked. Could you use a hairdryer if you did not have a heating tool yet?

  3. Hi Linda,
    I loved your stamp tutorial. Ellen Lindner directed me to it. For some reason, I’m not getting your e-mails anymore. I’d love to be back on your list, please.
    See you in March at Seaside Piecemakers!

    1. Hi Dij, try signing up again for the newsletter. If it tells you that you are already signed up, let me know what email address you subscribed with and I’ll check it for you. Otherwise you might check your spam filter. If you changed email addresses at some point perhaps you got dropped off the list. This happens automatically and unfortunately I have no control over it. Hope you enjoyed the video 🙂

  4. Thanks Linda for your terrific stamping video If people are unable to obtain the same blue foam as you are using they might like to know that the very cheap camping foam mattress does the same job I purchased one for around AU$6 and have made 20 stamps so far and there is three quarters of the foam left. The foam can be cut with a kitchen carving knife on a plastic cutting board into stamps of your desired size.
    Also about heating the surface – if one does not have a craft heat gun, try covering it with baking parchment paper and using an iron to heat the surface for a short while. Then turn it over and press onto the mould I have done this in class where there is only one heat gun and time constraints with students – the common iron is cheaper than the heat gun too so we have more in the craft classroom To remove the impression, and re use the mould, heat once more with the same method Hope this helps others to try this terrific technique
