Cut off the excess parts of the stamp drawn on the eraser, this allows to obtain a more accurate and clear stamp, and any sharp tool can be used to cut the eraser such as a knife, scalpel, scissors or any other tool.

Putting colored ink or paint on the stamp cut from the eraser, and then placing the eraser on the paper, and we will notice that an image of the stamp has been formed on the paper. Be careful with that, and don't cut any of the extra pieces.

Wipe the seal after use using wet baby wipes, as baby wipes contain lanolin that moisturizes rubber, and this makes the seal last longer, and the seal can be cleaned using a toothbrush, and any type of detergent, and it is necessary to avoid the use of any type of alcohol to dry the seal; This is because it dries out the rubber.
