How to clean your Printing Blocks with Tess Grace
Block Printing • Educational, G, 12-Aug-2021
Tess shows you how to clean your printing blocks so that your wooden printing blocks can be used again and again. It all starts with warm soapy water to rinse the blocks in. Give them a quick brush. Don't leave them in to soak, and don't worry if the white paint comes off, as its not a necessity. Then leave them to dry for when you are ready to block print again.
We have some lovely items from Tess in our Shop at www.justhands-on.tv.
