Intro To Block Painting/Printing

Today, before I venture out to do my inner core workout, I want to share my latest endeavor, “Block Painting.”  I’ve wanted to experiment with this technique for awhile, and decided to go for it!  Initially, the blocks were purchased to use with polymer clay, but after watching numerous YouTube videos, I decided to use fabric.  I also plan on using the eclectic mix of paint in my collection, before investing in the medium.

Here are various blocks for borders, allover printing, etc.

I drew a grid on the fabric first for placement of the block.  Of course, the striped fabric may or may not be your choice, but I wanted to try it anyway.

Got to go to class…more to come.

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.

    Yes, being disciplined and structured can be a burden. I find if I put off something until I get a project finished before moving on to another, I’ve forgotten what it was I wanted to do. I do have quite a few UFOs. Thanks for following my blog. Have a great weekend!
