1 Cut a potato in half, keep­ing the sur­face as flat as pos­si­ble. Place a star-shaped cookie cut­ter on a chop­ping board with the cut­ting edge fac­ing up­wards and press the potato down on it. Cut away the ex­cess potato us­ing a sharp knife.

2. If the potato is wet, blot it on kitchen pa­per. Pour the paint into a saucer and dip the potato into the paint, mak­ing sure that the whole shape is cov­ered.

3. To en­sure the whole de­sign prints prop­erly, use a gen­tle rock­ing mo­tion on the pa­per, mov­ing the potato from side to side with­out lift­ing. Con­tinue print­ing, then al­low the de­sign to dry.
