Block Printing

I'm going to be teaching a class in the Craftland School of Craft on March 27th on making block printed stationery. Today I thought I should brush up since it's been awhile since I've done it. I decided to do some cards with my home state. (It's funny, I did a bunch of test prints with red ink and couldn't figure out why I disliked it so much since I've been loving red lately. Then it dawned on me, Rhode Island is so not a red state!) I ended up printing them in a spring-y orange/yellow color. I'm happy with them. I do love the slightly mottled effect the block printing gives, as opposed to the nice, clean print of the Gocco.

  1. I agree, I like the uneven look that block printing gives. Wish I was closer, I really need to pull out my inks but really haven't a place for it right now. It would be nice to visit craftland and meet with other artists who are excited about trying it out. Good luck with the class. :)
