Inspiration Tuesday

How would you use it in your art? At the recent meeting for Contemporary Quilt, I started with an icebreaker. I got the idea from a site I looked at in studying for my teaching training course. I took this tool I have had in my drawer for sometime. I don't even know how I got it! I passed it around and asked the question above.

Anyway, there were some interesting ideas including making marks in paint for monoprint. Create a stamp with soft sculp by pressing it against the ridges. Cut carrots, potatoes, etc and use them to print with, and so on. In the past, I have used it to hammer marks onto metal which I then used in my art.

What would you do with it artistically?
