Well, she dropped by my blog the other day and mentioned that her class would be doing printing with foam blocks this week.
So for Iz and all her students ( and I have no idea if any of them drop by here) I rummaged through my tin of foam print blocks and assembled some of them artfully on the work table and took a photo.
Iz - hope you and they can get some inspiration.
This first collection has a bit of a Spanish feel. That's a Comb in the foreground.
Randomness , including the block for my Christmas card ( and a couple made from commercial shapes not yet used).
The flower ones have been particularly successful - I used a Sarah Raven catalogue for inspiration, and also the horse chestnut leaf (which had an outing with my mixed media prints just before Christmas).
And last of all a detailed leaf pattern from the C&G courses couple of years ago.
Some of them required intricut cutting. I use small sharp scissors, a craft knife and, sometime, a soldering iron to burn in detail . But this gives off a nasty smell so you can only do that in a very well ventilated area. Not really recommended.
I use pva glue to stick them down, and if just stick them to recycled card (dog biscuit boxes come in very handy).
I love my foam print blocks.
