Handpainted Cards


Author:  Longhorn Council

For these two types of hand printed cards you will need: blocks of wood about %’
thick., heavy string, sponge, ink pad or acrylic paint, any type of paper. Always
place the card to be printed on a pad of newspapers.

String Cards:

Use a block of wood the size of your design. Trace the design onto the wood and
outline with string that has been dipped in glue. Use straight pins to hold the
design in place at any comers until dry.

Make sure the whole string design is the same thickness to make a good print.
After the string is dry, press your design block. on the ink pad or into paint, blot
on paper towels and then press onto card. Hammer top of wood block. Lightly to
transfer design to card.

Sponge Cards:

Use a fine grained synthetic sponge about l/4” thick. for ease of cutting. Cut
sponge to desired shape and glue to wooden block. Dip sponge into paint or
press onto ink pad, blot on paper towels and then onto card. Add any line details
by hand. Sponge painting works especially well with light paints on dark paper.
