These are the tools used in printing the blocks.
In the past I have used a brayer to apply the paint, but recently I have been using a foam roller from a home improvement store with good results. The tray onto which I poured the paint is a hard plastic one that I salvaged from a food product package. The paint is contained within its raised edges and it rinses off very easily.
I marked off a grid pattern with soft pencil lines on a large swath of white fabric. Then I printed multiples of the circles block with Cardinal Red Setacolor fabric paint.

Tomorrow I will post about auditioning colors to use in over-painting. These posts are the beginnings of my participation in the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge. If you, too, would like to participate, link to http://muppin.com/…/inde…/the-31-day-blog-writing-challenge/
Always remember, never fear to experiment.
Sometimes wonderful things happen.
