DIY - Pixel Art With A Potato Stamp

Photobucket

I love the look of pixel art (also see Scrabble Pixel Art DIY). I decided I had to make another piece of pixel art after I saw Design Heaven's DIY : Pyramid Painting.  I look their tutorial and made my own piece of art, and here is how I did it:

Supplies:
-Potato
-Knife
-Plate
-Paint
-Paper.  You can also use an art canvas, fabric, wood...

Skill level - easy

Photobucket
-Cut the potato in half and carve design/image for stamping.  For my pixel are, I cut a basic square shape.

Put a little paint on the plate, dab the potato stamp into the paint, press the stamp gently onto the plate to semi-even coat of paint on the stamp.  And simply start pressing the stamp onto the paper in whatever pattern you desire.  I stamped on the paper 3-4 time before re-inking the stamp.
