52 Weeks of Printmaking: Week 10




Week 10: block print on paper.

I shared an earlier version of this print a few weeks ago on the social medias (sic). I revamped it (read: I was exhausted after launching my new collection and had no energy to do a fresh, new print) by trying out a new color and printing on – gasp! – black paper.

And then I wrapped a box with it. I am getting fancy over here.

I’m still on my quest for the perfect textile block printing ink. I found some that looked promising, but it’s oil based, and oil-based inks smell like, well, gasoline.  I don’t recommend printing with stinky ink in a 54 square foot studio.

For some block-printed textiley goodness, check out Susan Connor’s beautiful new line of printed throws and pillows , and Block Shop’s yummy scarves.

Happy Monday!

  1. Jen! Oh my gosh, thank you for the mention! I am so flattered…It was truly a labor of love to learn to do the block printing, create the designs, find the inks, test the fabrics…so I can relate to your post! It’s trial and error…but when it works, it can be sooooo satisfying.

    I am going to send you a quick email regarding ink… there’s one that might work…but it’s a little finicky. : )

  2. Just found your blog via pinterest. I was amazed when I realized that I’ve seen your prints before at The Verb in Berkeley! Love your work. Thanks for sharing some of that here.
