Create A Tutorial Exchange Program With Evie's Tool Emporium - Wooden Dapping Block With Punches

Wooden Dapping Block With Punches

Have you heard about the Create A Tutorial Exchange Program?

If you an artist, here is an opportunity for you to receive a free wooden dapping block with punches as well as drive traffic to your online website and your blog! I am offering this dapping block to an artist who would like to create a unique piece utilizing the dapping block. Then show us all how it was done by posting a tutorial on your blog. The dapping block will be free to the artist who is chosen to create the tutorial. All artists in the world are welcome to apply! If you have already purchased a dapping block from us and you are chosen you will receive a $10.00 gift certificate to Evie's Tool Emporium.

I will link your tutorial on Evie's Tool Emporium and here on the Evie's Tool Emporium blog. In return you will link your online website and your blog to me. The tutorial will also appear on the Totally Tutorials blog who is facilitating the Create A Tutorial Exchange Program. For further details please check out Totally Tutorials.

If you are interested in creating a unique piece with the wooden dapping block with punches please post a comment here with your URL. Otherwise please feel free to convo me at Evie's Tool Emporium. The ideal candidate will be an artist comfortable working with the medium of your choice. The ideal candidate will also have a blog and have the ability to take nice photos. Then I will randomly choose an artist from those candidates.

Applications will be accepted through Thursday September 24th at midnight. I will contact the artist chosen for this tutorial on Saturday September 26th.

Hi! I'd love to be considered as well :) It's not shown in my Etsy but I do have experience with silversmithing and using dapping blocks and punches!
I have, however, already done a tutorial exchange so if you want a new person then that's understandable :)

I think I could make people want to buy lots of dapping block sets- once they see all the wonderfully easy and creative things they can do with them! From jewelry to findings to sculpture - dapping blocks make it easier!
Check out the tutorial on my blog as well as my etsy shop or website.

After much consideration, am going to give this a try. Though the use of the dappling block will be non-traditional. It seems like this wooded block and punches could be adapted to molding flower petals for fabric flowers. If chosen will give it a go and make some flowers to trim a hat and make a brooch too.

What a fun exchange. Thanks for the opportunity.

Oh oh, i am just on the deadline !

We Frenchies are a little bit in late with this type of tools. So, if i can try working with those lovely wooden dapping block and its punches, sure i'll be the happiest of the world ! My idea is to try with soft and etched copper.

Thank you so much to share with us such a beautiful exchange.
