Hi there. I design stamps using Illustrator and would like to know if anyone knows the process/method for creating something like this below? I want to create layering images that when built up creating a 3D image. I have no idea where to start!
The images all need to be black but obviously when they're stamps you would use them to layer up colours to create shadows and highlights etc.
Notice that in your second image the stamps are labeled: Step 1, Step 2, Step 3. The "shadows and highlights" are done by using three different inks in different shades. Each stamp is put on a separate block, then the stamps are used in succession. Google "two-step stamping" for tutorials.
I'm sorry, perhaps I wasn't clear, I am trying to actually design a stamp set in Illustrator which will layer up when used with different inks. I am not sure how to go about it and wondered if there was a technique to it that I'm not aware of.
