soap type




I love the way letter forms look stamped into these hand-made French blocks of soap. Soap reminds me of clay, I have been wanting to stamp "gleena" into my pieces in a similar way. To do that I need to find thin type that will easily press into the clay without altering the form. Perhaps a laser-cut plastic stamp will do it?
