Block printing usually involves applying colour on one surface and pressing the colour to another. One can print onto all sorts of surfaces like paper or cloth. The type of colour you choose will depend on what you are printing. Most of the printing methods involve the use of a printing block, but there are many things, which will print just as they need no preparation. Blocks can be made from Wood, Leaf, Potato, Match sticks etc. may be used for printing to give endless variety of patterns. No prior knowledge is required for learning or practising the craft, just a wish to do something extraordinary, a positive attitude is what is required by the student and with a clear mind sky is the limit. A home craft in the beginning with a small investment of 1000/- can be turned into a small scale industry.
