Another kind of potato printer can be made by leaving the picture flat and cutting away everything but the picture. Now when you put paint on the potato, only the picture will print.
You can use each half of the potato for a different kind of potato printer.
Try printing with different-sized corks, spools, bottle caps, erasers, and other things.
