a plain cotton or linen tea-towel
A paint brush or little sponge
Old news paper (to cover the table)
Cut the potato.
You can iron your tea-towel beforehand but I prefer using the fold lines as guides to centre my design. Place it on a few pages of news-paper to protect your work surface.
Paint the potato and print it on your tea-towel. repeat until you are satisfied with your design.
Leave to dry for an hour.
Iron to set the colour.
Wash before using the first time.
