Lampshade Printing

There’s nothing better on a Sunday afternoon than rolling up your sleeves and getting covered in paint. After all our inspiring trips I have decided to print some of my own lampshades using two of our woodblocks, one of which was carved by Leo. I used speedball inks, but any matt paint would do. Printing onto fine Japanese paper gave a clear finish and meant the light shone through, highlighting the design. I was also inspired by a Design Sponge blog post, which shows how to brighten up an old lampshade.
