Wash and dry your fabric to remove any sizing that might interfere with your ink.
Cut your project pieces from your chosen fabric. Cutting your fabric before printing offers two advantages: The first is that working with smaller pieces is easier and requires less space; the second is that cutting your fabric before printing will allow you to be more intentional with your pattern placement.
Lastly, prepare your workspace by laying down butcher paper or newsprint, because things are about to get messy!
Pour a small amount of ink onto a piece of Plexiglass or into a shallow container.
Use a brayer to roll the ink from the container onto the block. Make sure that the block is evenly coated with ink.
Practice your stamping technique on a scrap piece of paper. It’s important to apply even, uniform pressure to your block.
Once you have perfected your technique, you are ready to move on to fabric! Roll the ink on your block and stamp your fabric using even pressure.
Don’t worry if each stamp yields a small amount of variety. Small imperfections are part of the beauty of this technique!
