If you choose to print on paper or canvas, you can use brush paints such as tempera, acrylics, inks, etc. If you wish to print on fabric, you can buy special paints that do not wash off in the washing machine.

Materials

  • Chinese ink in different colors or ecolines
  • Paintbrush
  • Paper plates
  • Foam paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Fabric tote bag
  • Glue

Proccess

  1. Place the outline of the figurine on the foam paper.
  2. Use a pencil to press on the outline and leave a trace on the foam paper.
  3. Remove the outline and trace the outline with the pencil to create deep grooves.
  4. To make your own patterns, draw directly on the foam surface, pressing down hard on the pencil.
  5. Cut out the designs and glue them on the back of a round paper plate.
  6. Use a brush to spread the paint on the foam surfaces you have engraved.
  7. Turn the plate upside down and press down the entire surface with the palm of your hand. Be careful not to move the plate.
  8. We lift the plate and our work is printed onto the fabric!
  9. You can use the stamped plate as many times as you want and on any surface you want!
