A large potato cut into half
A sharp knife
Acrylic paints or different coloured ink pads
After slicing the potato into two halves, pat it dry with a piece of cloth
Draw the outline of any shape on the cut surface of the potato. It is ideal to confine yourself to a simple shape for better results
Carefully snip off the area outside the shape drawn on the potato. In other words, cut all along the outline drawn
Pat the surface of the potato dry
Keep some coloured paint in a plate
Dip the flat surface of the shaped potato on the colour pad or on the paint in the plate and gently press the potato on the white paper
Lift the potato straight up in one go, else the paint will smudge when you press the potato on paper. A little practice will help in obtaining a good clean result.
