1. Take the potato and cut it crosswise into appropriate slices with the knife. If you have several potatoes of different sizes, all you have to do is cut the potatoes in half. But if there is only one potato, you can cut it into different sizes to make several potato stamps. With this method, the stamps form a unique pattern to make a work of art.

2. Cut the potato lengthwise so that you get a large surface area. Now use an additional mold (such as cookie cutters) and press the cutter into the potato. This way, the potatoes are cut into various precise shapes

The only thing missing now is the color. But before you start painting the potato slices, it is advisable to cover the table with newspaper, cardboard, or something similar.

You can paint the potatoes with different kinds of colors. It is better to use water-based paints such as posters or acrylic paint to color these potatoes.

Make sure that the paint your using is non-toxic so that children can safely use the stamps.

Step 3

Start Stamping

It is advisable not to paint the individual potato slices with too much color. The texture of the potato is not that visible when stamped if you use too much paint.
