And when I say 'tried' to stamp, I really do mean 'tried' because it was harder than I thought it would be.
I knew that my usual reinkers would not work for the colouring, nor would Copics, so I bought a basic set of acrylic paints which did actually work, but even so, still wasn't easy!
I purposely chose a small, simple stamp because I knew the colouring would be difficult and I'm glad I did!
The shading isn't great. Well, I attempted some shading, but it looks non-existent really. Well, the thought was there!
Finally, I had to re-draw the features of his face with a black glaze pen because they disappeared underneat the acrylic paint!
