One of our new t-shirt designs for fall is this Soul Flower block print shirt, available in women’s and men’s styles.
The design is meant to look like a traditional block print. So how did we do it? By carving into and printing a real linoleum block, of course! 🙂
(You can buy all these supplies at your local art store.)
Blog Image Roll the ink on to the block in an even layer.
Blog Image Block has a shiny, sticky layer of ink on the surface.
Blog Image Got our paper ready (a thin rice paper is best for block prints), and grabbed a wooden spoon.
Blog Image Finished print!
Blog Image The next step was to scan the print into the computer, do a little adjustment so the design was completely black and white (no grays), and blow it up so it is larger than the original small size of the block. Send it over to our screenprinters (another cool printmaking process!), and you get an awesome final product!
