Wednesday, 19 March 2008 by Irene Hoofs

..this is a simple project – creating an alphabet poster using wood typeset

What you will need:
*variety of fonts, shapes and sizes of typeset (if you don’t have typeset use found blocks and different kinds of shapes)
*black block printing ink
*roller, plexi to roll ink on, spatula
*white medium weight paper 16 x 20 in.

step one:
..roll ink on top of the typeset letter and press firmly on paper.  Make sure to work on a flat surface and to put a good amount of ink (the wood tends to absorb the ink’s moisture)
..repeat this step till you get your desired effect.  For this poster I started in the center and worked outwards.  If you like use colored ink or a stamp pad and use colored paper.
