|Block Printing Inks|
Blocking Printing with printing inks is a great and fun art project for the school classroom.
There are a lot of great brands of printing inks you can use and you will find them from your local school art supplier.
Everyday objects like caps, buttons and string can be used to make graphic, beautiful block printed images or you can use lino or wood to carve out your own artwork like in the video below.
Below is a really great video from Speedball a brand from USA but you can do this type of block printing with other brands too.
For the best results use a “proper printing ink” and don’t use an acrylic paint with a printing medium mixed.
