We’re so excited to be featured in the November 2016 issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine!
We were contacted earlier this year (magazines have such long lead times to production) and were delighted with the end result and seeing our wooden printing blocks and textile paints used in such a beautiful way!
The magazine reads, “Block printed linenas are costly to buy, but surprisingly simple to make. With little more than textile paint, muslin fabric, and woodblock stamps, a personalized setting is close at hand. We went with a botanical motif, but choose whatever appeals to you.”
Project designers Silke Stoddard and Tanya Graff used a palette of our Transparent Textile Paint in 15 Colonial Gold, 45 True Blue and 403 Indigo. These paints have a thick, pudding-like consistency, making them ideal for block printing. They used our foam printing mats to ensure the best prints, and printed on muslin (see sources, right)…and here’s a tip for you: we sell Nature’s Way™ by Roc-lon® muslin at just $4.00 a yard!
Blocks used in the magazine project, which includes instructions, are:
- WB111 Fern Wood Block
- WB369 Thistle Wood Block
- WB371 Lotus Flower Wood Block
- WB400 Triple Leaf Sprig
- See also WB370 Small Triple Leaf Repeat Wood Block, a smaller 5-up repeat version of WB400
Pick up your copy of the November 2016 Martha Stewart Living to share in our “grateful spread” as well as for the usual wonderful recipes, decorating ideas and more. For our own tips on block printing, please see:
