Potato Print Making
March 5th, 2012 by Craftylocks

 

I thought this was quite a fun craft for children, to fit in with St Patrick’s day – decorating paper with potato prints.

Cut your potato in half making the cut surface as flat as possible, this will give a much better print surface.

A nifty way to get a nice shape cut into the potato is to use a cookie cutter shape to press into the potato and then use a knife to cut the potato away up to the edge of the cookie cutter.

Then when you lift the cookie cutter shape away you will have a nice shape ready to start printing with.

To get the paint onto the printing surface of the potato, you can either paint it on with a brush, or spread the paint onto a tray and stamp into the tray and then on the paper.
