I took the idea from this image by Mobstr—>
To try something similar by printing words onto a block of something, as no smooth bricks were available I decided to print on a block of wood about the same size of a brick.
I made up a bit of text keeping to Mobstr’s theme of satire, as I was printing on a block of wood I decided to use the phrase “I want to be a tree” in a similar font as to that of Mobstr’s stencils.
I printed out the phrase backwards so that when it was printed onto the block it would be the right way round. Paint stripper was applied to the words, then the paper was pressed onto the block and rolled over using a roller so that the ink in the words would be pressed onto the block.
The end product was —>
