Wood blocks! Have you ever thought about using these on polymer clay?
Now that’s an idea!
The other day I was walking in my town and noticed a shop de-stashing all its content.
One of the items was wood printing blocks. I looked closely, knowing there was something I could use them with polymer clay.
Woodblock printing is a technique for printing text, images or patterns used widely throughout East Asia and originating in China as a method of printing on textiles and paper.
Anyway, before I knew it, I bought all his stash – all 50 blocks :) and they sat on my shelf, for about a year.
Two months ago I decided to use them. I didn’t know what or how so I started playing with my favorite materials (acrylics and chalk pastels) knowing something fun would come out of it. And it did! 1-2-3 and you get a printed sheet! It’s so easy I had to make a video of it.
I combined with image transfers, clear resin finish, and crackle medium and the result is colorful beads you can use in your everyday projects.
