Potato printing for adults
Remember potato printing? Turns out it’s not just for the kids. We love this printing idea, creating a geometric pattern using the humble potato. We’ve printed ours onto linen to wrap around pot plants, a simple yet thoughtful gift that friends and family will love.
You will need: Potato and knife, paint tray, linen or calico, scissors and twine, Resene testpot in your choice of colour: we used Resene Wimbledon.
Top tip: Try cutting other shapes out of potatoes for your prints. Vary the Resene colours and colour combinations to get a variety of finished effects.
