Block Printing

Choose a copyright free line art design from the internet; size to fit a block; place the pattern over a piece of art foam (available in all colors at craft stores like Hobby Lobby) and cut between all the lines. Reconstruct the shape allowing space between each piece and glue on block. Allow to dry.

 The chalice and loaf block print is a combination of a simple circle stamped first and allowed to dry; and the cup and bread which is printed on top of the circle. Foam block printing can be “stamped” onto traditional stamp pads, but they also work well to brush with acrylic paint—which gives the two-color imprint indicated below.

Use the block imprints on posters, journals, and t-shirts.
