Block Printing tools of the trade

I've been cutting new blocks and stencils for Summer clothes. It's so cool to see the magic of printing. You're never sure exactly how the print will come out and yet it's almost always something workable if not outright pleasing. I'm starting to over-dye or tea-stain some pieces as well. Really nice look.


  1. I love doing small samples for piecework, but you could also try this on a silk scarf or blouse or even to stretch over canvas. This type of printing is full of surprises and happy accidents. Most importantly it conveys the subtle beauty of decay, which is what many of us love about fall. Try it out for a fun Thanksgiving project! Printing

  2. I have to say, I am thrilled with this new process and quite proud of my work! Printing
