painting with patterned blocks

A couple of weeks ago, Avery used patterned blocks to paint on some Arches watercolor paper. The blocks were from this Melissa & Doug set and the paint was from Glob.  Glob produces natural paints made from fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs.   Avery experimented with the blocks, using them not only to stamp, but to smear paint.  She would also dip a block in multiple paints, mixing the colors and making interesting patterns.
