Indian Wood Printing Block - Peacock

 

All our woodblocks are made on a fair trade basis from sustainable Sheesham wood by our supplier Gurmakh and his family in India.  Each is hard carved. The men do the carving by making a design in metal wire, heating it and then stamping it onto the raw blocks.  The scorched marks are then used as a template for hand carving the design.  Next the women soak the blocks in linseed oil, dry them and finish them with a gesso white paint on the printing surface to give a hard and durable yet smooth finish for printing.  Often the natural wood oils change the gesso colour to light brown.  The blocks are cut deep enough for printing onto fabric and paper. Great used with acrylic and fabric paints or printing ink.  Those with an advanced skill can also print with henna onto skin or press into clay.  However they can also just be used as a decorative piece of art for the home!
      
This woodblock is of a peacock.  
  
Measures 11m wide by 11 tall and 3cm thick.

Lovely Quality Block

Bought two sets from Rainbow Rebel, this one and a multi set to go with it of animals. Lovely quality blocks great for printing on paper or card. Cut deep enough to take the ink or paint well without smudging. Each is a little piece of art.
