- Give your potato a chance to dry or pat dry potato stamps with a paper towel. (A wet potato may keep the paint from binding the right way.)
- Apply paint on to the potato stamp. You can do this with a paintbrush, paint roller or with a kitchen sponge. You can even spread a light layer of paint on a ceramic plate and cover your potato stamp with paint by pressing on the paint.
