Indian Wooden Printing Block – Thin Straight Handmade Text
Size Approx: Small – 1 x 8.5cm, Large – 1.25 x 11cm
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.
All of our wooden printing blocks can be used for Fabric printing, Paper / Card printing & pressing into Clay! It’s important when printing fabric to use a fabric paint/ medium so the design is totally washable. When printing onto paper and card you can use a wide variety of paints/inks. Ink pads aren’t always wet enough to use with the printing blocks so we advise using paint. Remember to always use a sponge when applying any paint to the block.
