To create your beautiful designs, you will use the art of block printing. This is a traditional hand printing technique that can be completed using the Colouricious wooden printing blocks and fabric paint. You will dab a sponge into some fabric paint, then transfer this paint onto the patterned surface of your block. When the patterned block is covered in paint, you will then press this onto your fabric, causing the fabric to have the same pattern imprinted onto their fabric. This really easy and simple method of hand printing is so much fun and produces gorgeous results!
