Using erasers is a great way to start getting into rubber stamp making because you can buy them anywhere and they’re very soft and easy to carve. Once you get a hang of working with erasers, you could try buying the more durable materials, like the rubber used for the soles of shoes, which require a bit more effort to carve but will definitely last longer.
Either way, it’s a real joy to finish a design and go around the house looking for things to stamp them on. Haha! ;p
