    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Kelli asks: "I have a box of acrylic blocks that I don't use any more. What else can I do with them?"
    A: Me too! I have a few larger blocks on my desk - I use them as weights when I need to keep something flat while it's drying. They also make great palettes for ink.

    Here are a few tutorials in our archives that feature an acrylic block:
    Stamped Acrylic Block Background (block used for monoprinting)
    Monoprinting (see video)
    Watercolor Imprints (block used as a weight)
    Shaving Cream Sparkle (block used as an applicator tool)
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    LuRae's comments about the Vintage Camper card: " 'So cute' is a total understatement! We have a vintage camper and I can’t wait to make some cards like this to match the color or our camper … decorated for Christmas, maybe? I love your resourcefulness."
