Block-printing is a fun and exciting way of making multiple images as art or for use on personalized greeting cards, scrap books, illustration and so on.

Water-based inks are easy to clean up but are often difficult to work with due to their fast drying time and they also tend to have a flat, matte finish. Professional print-makers rely on oil based inks, but they require solvents and ventilation. Using Cobra solvent-free oils gives you the best of both worlds.

Beautiful, rich colours and clean up with regular soap and water. Darryl will demonstrate the entire process of block printing including transferring an image using a standard photocopy and matte medium.
