Train Engine Prints


This is a little project I did for Spud's second birthday party, which was train-themed. He was [and is] a big Thomas and Friends fan but I didn't want his birthday to be so commercial. I made invites with the print and also T-shirts for Spud and his wee guests.

These fantastic Speedball blocks are nothing like the lino we used in high school art class. I can remember cutting myself many times as I tried to cut through the tough and slippery smooth tiles. This product is a dream in comparison, and is like cutting through butter.

The image will be a reverse of what you carve on the block; an important note to remember when carving type.

I used fabric paint for the T-shirt prints.
