19R166L - Watercolor and Block Prints

19R166L - Watercolor and Block Prints19R166L - Watercolor and Block Prints

Imagine the combination of relief block prints and watercolor. Relief block prints hold a huge realm of possibilities. You can repeat the image to create wonderful additions for cards or works on paper. Learn how to design and carve images with little effort on soft rubber material. These designs will build detail and decorative lines for our watercolor painting. I’ll show you ways to drop in brilliant watercolor onto the paper surface. Adding watercolor to block prints is a form of instant gratification. Bright colors, lines, and shapes just pop immediately on the surface with little effort. No worries about your drawing skill level – tracing paper will be available! Indulge yourself for a day of creativity with paint, print, and line.

Materials fee includes printmaking papers, print blocks, printing inks.
