If you love block printing and have been creating your own textiles for some time now, have a go at double block printing. Essentially there are two wooden printing blocks – one is a solid design and the other is an outline design. Block printing with two blocks is very quick easy and effective. First you charge up the solid design block with your fabric paint and press down onto your fabric – remember to have a foam mat underneath. Secondly you charge up the outline block with a contrasting colour. Hover this block over the first print, eyeball the designs so that it is exactly on top of the previous one and print. Do not worry if the resolution is not 100% accurate as that is all part of the charm and delight of hand printed fabric.

The best paints for printing onto fabric is our Colouricious fabric paint. Here is a special offer for you to buy our Colouricious Rainbow Set of Fabric Paints and our Colouricious Metallic Fabric Paints, on special offer.fabric-paints-textile-art Wood Stamps Double Block Printing
