Step 2

Lay the block on your work surface and paint one of the flat sides. Set the block aside to dry.

TIP:Paint several blocks in this way so that by the time youhave gotten through the stack you can go back and start with number one again. Waiting for paint to dry can get frustrating and off putting.
