Stamping was one of JS' first art activities. It was about 6 months ago when he did his first vegetable stamping. We used three types of vegetables - okra, long beans and onion, to stamp a tortoise (http://sotayoutlet.blogspot.com/2013/12/he-loves-colours.html). At that time, he was not good at it and I had to help him do most of the work but this time round, he managed to do most of the work except the cutting of the mold (from foam sheets) as he was not very good yet at cutting curvy lines.
First, he drew several patterns using the help of a stencil. Then, he tried to cut the molds.
Next, he glued the molds on bottle caps.
He started off with the grass.

This was how he preferred to do his stamping.
So, is this a mushroom farm or a tulip field with mushrooms? You decide.
