We’ve just received some Safeprint – and it is fab (and quick!). I had a little go this afternoon with my friend’s daughter. It’s really easy to use.

Simply draw your image using a sharp pencil or biro or press objects into it (the end of a ruler or an empty biro works well). Remember anything you draw will be printed in reverse.

Roll out some ink thinly. We used Black waterbased block printing ink but the Speedball Bloc Printing Ink or the Caligo Safe Wash will work well too.

Then roll the ink onto the Safeprint.

Put a thin sheet of paper on top of the Safeprint. Press using a baren or a clean roller. You can turn the paper with the Safeprint stuck to it and press on the back of the Safeprint too. The Safeprint is really soft so not too much pressure is needed.

Peel back the paper and reveal your print.

Here’s one we made just by pushing an empty biro into the Safeprint.
