Woodblock pattern printing is the oldest type of textile printing in the world. This tuber-enabled adaptation is kid-friendly, and makes great gift wrapping, wall hangings and refrigerator art.
Supplies: potatoes, paint, foam brush, old plate, old newspaper, a paring knife and paper.
- Use the newspaper to protect your work surface.
- Cut the potatoes into fun-shaped blocks.
- Pour paint onto your plate, and apply to your potato blocks with the foam brush.
- Start with some practice stamping.
- Once you find a pattern you like, stamp it out on an entire piece of paper from left-to-right, top-to-bottom. Inconsistency adds to beauty.
