The Intensive Process
The blocks are treated with a white Titanium paste on the top.
The design is drawn on butter paper and later placed on the wooden block that is used to create a dotted line with a tool.
The block maker makes a mark with a dotted line using an iron tool. This step is very important, after which any step cannot be undone. After every detail has been outlined, he begins to carve, it could take him one day or even a week to complete the carving, this depends on the intricacy of the design.
The blocks are oiled well to make sure they are long lasting. We also teach you how to take care of the blocks that you buy from Block Beauty.
