learning to make a linocut print | DIY art

This past weekend I dug into my art supplies and rediscovered a linocut printing set that I had purchased. Feeling adventurous, I dug in (pun intended?) and crafted the block below:

The steps were simply as follows:

  1. Choose your design
  2. Draw it in reverse on the block
  3. Remove access material using the cutting tool (cutting yourself minimally, ouch!)
  4. Ink and press

For those that have tried linocut printmaking, show me your stuff! I’d love to see it!
