Description
Block Printing

Folk Art of Hand Block Printing
Many years ago, as the story goes, women got very bored and tired of their plain white cotton clothes. So some women began using their bangles dipped in color to pattern their clothes. Carpenters saw this, and started making patterns on wood to do the same. Thus began the tradition of making blocks of wood for printing. This started almost 1000 years ago. And then the kings and queens and the royalty patronized this art, and it has flourished in India since then.

Originally natural dyes were used for printing but now chemical and artificial colors are also used. The main colors used were red, the color of love; yellow the color of spring; blue, color of Krishna and saffron, color of yogi. The main patterns are figures of animals, birds, flowers, trees and some geometrical patterns too. With wooden blocks, one can print on fabric, paper, and greeting cards and many more things.

Instructions:

Shake the bottles before use. Follow the instructions to make the printing pads out of the sponge provided inside the kit. Use the blocks to make your own pattern for printing on the fabric provided. Follow the instructions guide inside for printing. The blocks can also be used to print on T shirts, napkins, greeting cards etc.

This Box Contains:

3 fabric paints (10 ml)
3 wooden blocks
3 printing pads
1 voile handkerchief for printing

Dear friends, I just placed my order for one Radhe-Shyam copper bangle and I am looking forward to seeing the quality of your products. I have been searching for years for this price range of bangle with 'Radhe Radhe' or 'Radhe-Shyam'. I may add more items as I was not through shopping when I clicked on PayPal. Thanks sooo much for providing such hard-to-find and fair-priced items! Sincerely, David Briscoe

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
