Our Indian wooden printing blocks are hand carved on a Fairtrade project in Jaipur, India and are made using a sustainable wood known as Sheesham. The designs are traced and carved onto the wood. The blocks are then left to soak in mustard oil for several days, this preserves the wood making it non-absorbent.
Size Approx: 8.5 x 5.3cm
How to use:
- All of our wooden printing blocks can be used to hand print your own fabric, paper, card & clay.
- Printing on fabric: use a fabric paint or other medium to ensure the design is totally washable. Our fabric paints require heat setting with an iron to make permanent.
- Printing on paper & card: you can use a wide variety of paints. Ink pads aren't always wet enough to use with the printing blocks so we advise using paint such as acrylic .
- To ensure you get a good print, use a square piece of sponge or a dabber to apply your paint/dye/medium and a foam printing mat (or something soft) underneath the item.
