I’m certainly not the first person to potato stamp. And I’m sure I won’t be the last. What I love most about this versatile veggie is that it’s so easy to manipulate. A few swipes with a knife and you’ve got yourself a pretty little CUSTOM stamp. I’m going to ride the neon wave as long as humanly possible. While I love plain white flour sack towels, I decided to jazz a few up with some neon paint and a geometric shape or two.
To make your own you’ll need:
- neon paints in various colors (I chose pink and orange)
- flour sack towels
- russet potatoes
- paint brush
- plastic plate
Cut the potato in half and use your knife to carve out a small design. I just wanted regular old rectangles. Carve out the edges around your shape so that it is raised above the rest of the surface. Paint a thin layer of paint onto your potato stamp and get crackin’.
It’s kind of fun to overlap the colors. I believe in diversity.
Be a great neighbor or friend and deliver some fresh homemade bread wrapped in one of these lovelies.
These also accompany your meal quite nicely. Fold it up and weight it down with the heaviest fork you can find. It’s almost too pretty to wipe your mouth on it, don’t ya think?
