Penscore “block” prints for Sketchbook Challenge

Have any of you ever use the penscore moldable foam blocks to make prints? I had fun this afternoon printing up some collage papers for my journals and artwork .You heat the blocks with a heat gun and then press them onto found objects to make a big stamp. I used a Buddha statue face, keys, doll arms, a flat wooden bird form. If you don’t like the stamp you can heat it again and the image pops out to be reused again. Fun! .I used acrylic paints and over stamped the images to get a different look. Also used old paint brushes when applying the paint to get a cool scratchy organic look.
