TEXTURE PRINTING

Kids craft activity texture printing

This is a fantastic project to explore the concept of texture with your little ones, it is super easy and fun. I found my kids loved the process of revealing the final print.

MATERIALS:

Thick cardboard to make the base of your building block. A selection of textured materials like; bubble wrap, corrugated cardboard, tin foil or string. Glue, thick printing ink or poster paint and a brush. Paper to print onto.

TUTORIAL:

Cut out some base boards for the printing block. Then cut out lots of different shape textured materials. Glue them onto your base board to make a pattern.

Apply paint to the different sections of your printing block, you have to work fairly quickly so the paint doesn't dry. Thick printing inks are best as they take longer to dry but poster paint will do. Add a different colour to each section.

Press your printing block onto the paper to make your print. We layered the prints a few times to layer the patterns.

I loved the way the printing blocks turned out just as much as the final prints.
