There are so many things you can do with these Salvaged brand large 5 inch Wood Letter Press Blocks! Here are a few simple ways to get creative with letterpress blocks!
Gather any or all of these items:
Here are a few easy, fun mod podge techniques.
Tissue Paper is a little tough to smooth out but looks great on these wood letterpress blocks.
The wood grain shows through the thin tissue paper!
Tip:A bone folder is a great tool when smoothing out wrinkles, but be careful not to tear the delicate paper.
Tissue paper also makes a great cut out! Try out different shapes and overlapping techniques.
Fabric is easy to work with! This would be an easy way to get the kids involved! Have them lay down the pieces and paint over them with Mod Podge.
Spelling a name or an inspirational word is a fun way to display these works of art!
Did you notice that the "Y" in the photo above is a different color? Alcohol inks and even regular stamp pads can be used to change the color of the wood letter.
Don't forget to "think outside the letter," word cuts from old books look great in the black space as well as on the letter!
Use stickers to block out areas that you don't want to color! When the ink is dry, peel them off!
Just a regular stamp pad was used with this one! The wood grain shows through and looks awesome. After its dry, experiment with distressing inks! Thats how we got the unique edge effect.
