Indian Wooden Printing Block- Hydrangea
The Hydrangea is one of our new botanical printing blocks and is designed to work alongside blocks such as the ‘Large Botanical Cow Parsley’ and ‘Wild Seedhead’. This block is perfect for multi – colour prints and adds a great amount of versatility through colour choice alone!
Size Approx : 7 x 10 cm
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.
