This is a fairly easy project. All you need is a Pentel Hi-Polymer eraser (or similar), a wood carving tool with a V shaped point (find in wood section at craft store), and an idea!

I sketched this snowman onto the eraser and then carved out the negative space around the drawing. Carving the soft eraser puts me in this meditative, relaxed state. (I can use as much of those moments as possible!)

Then just use an ink-pad to test your design. Since this photo I have deepened the negative space so clean-up is easier, but I am happy with the result and will be making some more of these soon.
